The free exhibit runs to Saturday, April 27 at California State University, Sacramento’s Library Gallery Annex.
The exhibit comprises selected posters from Sacramento State’s own collection of RCAF works. The group, founded in 1969, included visual artists, poets, performers, musicians, politicians, union organizers and community activists. Members produced a great number of silkscreen posters and murals in the Sacramento region during the 1970s.
“The exhibit of Royal Chicano Air Force posters celebrates a historical arts collective that gave voice to an important community that makes Sacramento, and all of California, what and who it is,” said Ella Diaz, co-curator of the exhibit and professor of English and Latino studies at Cornell University.
The other curators are Julie Thomas, special collections and manuscripts librarian and Phil Hitchcock, gallery director.
The gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
