This document provides a history of Movimiento Artístico Chicano (MARCH), a group that was instrumental in creating opportunities for Chicano and Latino artists in the Midwest, as well as in bringing important art from Mexico to be exhibited in Chicago, the works by Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, Rufino Tamayo, and Xavier Guerrero, among others. Founded in 1971 in East Chicago (Indiana) by José G. González, MARCH moved its operations to the city of Chicago in 1972 where, during the 1970s, it organized a series of exhibitions of Mexican, Chicano, Latino, and Native American art. During the early 1980s, the poet Carlos Cumpián and the visual artist Carlos Cortéz Koyokuikatl directed MARCH’s efforts toward promoting national networks of Latino organizations, and continuing to display art by Latin artists. MARCH brought art to the working classes and the barrio, and participated at the national level via its invitation to the National Mural Conference held in New York City in April 1976. More than that, this document provides a lexicon of Chicago-area Chicano artists and brings to light the vibrancy of their community. It also makes clear the challenge of producing art while juggling working-class life in the Midwest thousands of miles from one’s previous, or ancestral homeland.
