In Tia Chucha's Centro Cultural and Bookstore

Seeing the penacho on the lovely Mexica lets folks know part of the focus at Tia Chucha's.  Sections in the book store include Spanish, Bilingual, Chicano, picture books...and so on.  

There is a part of the store that is very clearly art/crafting space and jaranas hang on the wall.
There are other aspects that have to do with identity and change.

This was a poster in Tía Chucha's bathroom.
Yes, it's a bit blurry, but the ideas are strong and clear. 

Loved this writing on the wall.


  1. It looks like a fantastic store. There should be more of them. I hope they're successful enough to becoming a chain.

  2. I think following their philosophy they'd like to see more cultural centers that reflect their communities. Trini and Luis J. Rodriguez are the proprietors. Luis a poet, journalist and columnist. Luis is probably best know for his book, "Always Running".

  3. That is a very clever graphic. Should show up more often.

  4. Reflects what I saw back in the day when I taught preschool.
