Hello friends! The August/September issue of Ms. magazine includes my article, "Like una virgen," on Chicana artists and images of the Virgen de Guadalupe. Thank you all so much for your assistance on this piece. I wasn't able to quote every person who helped me, but I sincerely appreciate the help and background so many women provided. In follow-up to the article, the head of the Museum of New Mexico has decided that Alma Lopez' work will remain on display. Though the issue will now proceed for consideration to the museum's board of regents, that group will probably not be able to schedule a hearing or make any decision until after the exhibit is scheduled to come down, at the end of October.  I salute Alma, along with the three other wonderful Latina artists whose work make up the "Cyber Arte" exhibit: Marion Martinez, Teresa Archuleta-Sagel, and Elena Baca, and Dr. Tey Marianna Nunn, the exhibit's curator. 

Again, thanks!

It is my belief that religious fundamentalist, no matter what their belief systems, are the most dangerous force in our world today and will use any means available to stifle our freedoms.  Attacking art and artists is an easy place to begin.  More power to you and I applaud the museum for going on with the exhibit.  Thank you .
