About Juana Alicia Araiza 
Juana Alicia was born in 1953 in Newark, NJ and has been based in the Bay Area since 1973. Alicia is a key figure in the Chicano Art movement and her murals can be seen across the globe, and in the Bay Area at notable sites such as The Women’s Building, Stanford University, San Francisco State University, University of California in Santa Cruz, and numerous other locations. Her highly political work has deep ties to activism and comments on the injustices we grapple with, particularly through the intersectional lenses of decolonization, feminism, and Mexican and Indigenous identity, as well as hope for a more equitable and just world. Alicia spends time between Berkeley and Mérida, Yucatán.

All programs are free and open to the public.
