11 Images from Cali's "Ni Solo Mujeres" Art Exhibit Celebrating Chicanas

Women's History Month is in full swing, and California's Southwestern College Art Gallery is celebrating by honoring Chicana artists.

In the exhibition “Ni Solo Mujeres: Intersecting Chicana Identities,” curator Leticia Gomez Franco put together brilliant and beautiful pieces from 11 artists that "extoll intersectional identities within feminist struggles."

“It challenges the idea that oppressive dichotomies can only be defeated through homogenous unity and instead presents a collection of work that celebrates the diversity within Chicana identity, and the power that lies in that intersectionality,” notes a press release about the exhibition, which will be on display until April 6.
