California Lawyers for the Arts takes pride in celebrating the influence of Hispanic/Latinx Americans on the history, culture, and achievements of the United States and looks forward to showcasing the work of Hispanic/Latinx artists, as well as providing useful resources for the community.
During the month of October the CLA team had the opportunity to interview The Royal Chicano Air Force (RCAF). They are a Sacramento, California-based art collective, founded in 1970 by José Montoya and Esteban Villa. It was one of the "most important collective artist groups" in the Chicano art movement in California during the 1970s and the 1980s and continues to be influential into the 21st century.
Members of the RCAF have worked as educators in all levels of education: elementary, high school, community college and university; they have taught in prisons, youth correctional facilities, neighborhood community centers and cultural facilities. Check out these videos of their trajectory and their work!
