A celebration of Chicano art, culture and music was on display on Saturday, Sept. 10, as dozens gathered for the opening of the dA Center for the Arts' newest exhibition. The exhibit, Chicano Park Muralists in Pomona Con Safos, showcases the vibrant art scenes in Pomona and San Diego. It also pays homage to renowned Chicano artist Gilbert 'Magu' Lujan, a major influence in both cities and throughout Southern California. In 2021, a 42-by-10-foot mural honoring Lujan was created by famed Chicano muralists David Botello and Wayne Healy and was placed on Main Street in Pomona.
