Mexican-American Identity: Cool Beans 

The artwork of Ruben Urrea Moreno, Rocky Cyfi Martinez, and Adan Banuelos is the focus of Cool Beans, an show on Friday, Nov. 21 and Saturday, Nov. 22, from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Art Gallery, 1122 N. Stone Ave. The show features a variety of media—painting, sculpture, prints and drawings—that explore the tensions and richness of Mexican-American identity. The importance of heritage and tradition is acknowledged, yet each artist explores their shared realities through their individual artists' lenses, as well as through the subcultures of low riding, street art and Chicanismo.
