Our dear friend and colleague Ed Fuentes sits with LWL to talk about his career as an advocate for Chicanx arts. Through his blog, Paint this Desert, he has been able to highlight the artistic diversity of our communities in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Ed also discusses the perils of being the only Chicano MFA student in a department dominated by white male artists, and the importance that public murals have in the fight for resistance against oppression and gentrification. #SupportBrownPodcasts #SupportLatinxPodcasts #LWLPod.
