Meet Our 2022 Getty MUI Archive and Research Assistant
Hello! My name is Pedro Mariano Gonzalez, and I am from the San Gabriel Valley. I attended Mt. San Antonio College then transferred to UCLA where I recently graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Chicana/o and Central American Studies. This summer I am working with the Center for the Study of Political Graphics as a Collections and Research Intern through Getty Marrow’s Undergraduate Internship Program. One of my favorite artworks I have come across so far has been, “Che Es America,” by Chicano artist, Juan R. Fuentes. I believe this piece links the Chicane movement in the U.S. with the Cuban revolution, and represents solidarity with all people across Latin America. To me, the artwork communicates to follow the legacy of Che Guevara, and fight for a Latin America free from U.S. imperialism. Che es America!
