The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) is proud to host a comprehensive retrospective exhibition of work by legendary Los Angeles artist Frank Romero, encompassing over 50 years of the artist’s career. Dreamland: A Frank Romero Retrospective is the first solo exhibition of a Chicano artist at MOLAA.
Born in East Lost Angeles in 1941, Frank E. Romero is one of the most iconic L.A. artists of our time. As the last practicing artist of the Los Four art collective, Dreamland recounts his life’s journey through paintings, sculptures, prints and ceramics.
This career retrospective explores Romero’s robust urban vocabulary steeped in an eclectic mapping of the city’s cultural terrain. Dreamland: A Frank Romero Retrospective celebrates the artist’s lifelong fascination with city lore and, through his perspective, explores the confluence of American pop culture, Latin American heritage, and the Chicano experience
