Fowler Talks: Celebrating CSRC Director Chon Noriega
The Fowler is honored to co-present a special program with the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) to celebrate Chon Noriega, who is stepping down this spring after 19 years as CSRC Director. The program will also mark the recent endowment of the Chon Noriega Arts Fund, which will support research-based efforts to advance the understanding of the arts within the mission of the CSRC.
Join the Fowler, CSRC, and Director Noriega for dynamic conversations and special presentations with CSRC friends and collaborators across academic disciplines whose work focuses on arts and culture, civil rights, law, and policy.
Special guests include: Fowler Director Marla C. Berns, Wendy Laura Belcher, María De Los Angeles “Nena” Torres, Carlos M. Haro, Claudia Mitchell-Kernan, Cheech Marin, Terezita Romo, the Hon. Lucille Roybal-Allard, Thomas A. Saenz, Pilar Tompkins Rivas, and David K. Yoo; poetry readings by Roberto Tejada and Vickie Vértiz; and a performance by the incomparable Dan Guerrero.
We invite you to email a brief congratulatory statement for Chon to firstname.lastname@example.org. A selection of these messages will be displayed in Zoom before the program begins. Please indicate if you do not wish for your message to be displayed publicly.
The Fowler is honored to be a convening place for conversations and lectures that explore the many ways art creates meaning and defines purpose for people across the globe.
