FRANK ROMERO’S “THE CITY”May 22, 2018
“The City” is an exhibition of low relief sculptures of iconic Downtown Los Angeles buildings by Romero.
Romero, is one of the last surviving members of iconic artist collective, Los Four known for promoting Chicano art and culture awareness in Los Angeles most significantly since the first Chicano exhibition in a mainstream museum at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in 1974.
This collection of new works exemplifies the architectural influences that continue to inspire Romero as an artist living in Los Angeles. Familiar motifs of transportation, public art, heroic women, politics and the Chicano point of view are prevalent here including police violence. Romero’s famous use of vibrant color welcomes viewers and invites them to look again.
