"Woman with Crown of Flowers," ca. 2006-2008, acrylic on canvas, by David Tineo, is among the works in ¡Viva David Tineo!, at the Tucson Museum of Art, 140 N. Main Ave. From the collection of Donna Al-Ghurab, Tucson, Ariz.

You can check out that show (and the ongoing shows featuring work by Andy Warhol and Ed Mell) at the Crush Wine, Food, Art Festival coming up on April 9-10. Details on the delicious fundraiser here.

TMA notes about Tineo:


Since his first public work in 1976, Tineo has painted more than 80 murals and created another 120 with members of neighborhood associations, youth programs and school children. Perhaps his best-known artwork is Nuestras Raices Humanas (Our Roots), painted in collaboration with Antonio Pazos in 1992. This monumental painting hangs in the Plaza of the Pioneers at the Tucson Museum of Art and epitomizes

the artist’s commitment to the Chicano movement. It features images of Aztec and Maya myths; key figures and scenes of the Mexican revolution, and the struggle of farm workers in the Southwest.

The works in the exhibition have been culled from private and institutional collections dispersed throughout Tucson and include artworks on canvas, burlap and paper, ranging from small and intimate to large, vibrantly colored images created from the 1970s through 2008. Archival materials—photographs and writings by the artist; audiovisual and interpretative labels, will also be on display to show the relationship of the artist’s endeavors to the social and cultural milieu of Tucson and the Southwest.

David Tineo continues to participate in a broader circle of artists, educators and intellectuals who collectively strive to advance the life conditions for Mexican Americans. By celebrating art, culture, and history, they seek to gain recognition and respect while educating the upcoming generations of their rich heritage.
