Praise for this book
Even by coffee-table standards, 'Triumph of Our Communities: Four Decades of Mexican American Art' is super sized ... The quality and variety of art in 'Triumph' reinforces the fact that although the Georgia O’Keefes, Will Shusters, Larry Bells and Raymond Jonsons of the world have achieved star status, there are many Hispanic artists in our midst who deserve similar acclaim ... I recommend getting out and seeing the real thing. But I also recommend getting this book.Dan Herrera Assistant Managing Editor, Albuquerque Journal
I love this book. Every time I open it, it envelops me in visual joy!Manuel Gómez Chancellor of Student Affairs, University of California, Irvine
