    Dr. Noriega in The Los Angeles Times: “Newsletter: Essential Arts: Epic memo to the Whitney on exclusion of Chicano art from American story”


    Since 2002, Chon Noriega has led UCLA’s Chicano Studies Research Center, an academic hub that was launched in the late 1960s, and that has been key to archiving Chicano historical documents, producing original scholarship and publications, and commissioning oral histories of important artists, activists and political figures. After 19 years, he is stepping down from that role — though he will remain as a professor in the department of film, television and digital media.
