Amvets Post #5: Artist Talk with Xavier Tavera at the Minnesota History Center
Hosted by Brian Horrigan, AB'72, Minnesota History Center curator of WW1 and 1968
The Artist Talk is hosted by Brian Horrigan, AB’72, curator of WW1 America, Minnesota's Greatest Generation, and The 1968 Exhibit, currently on show at the History Center. After Xavier's talk, enjoy a self-guided viewing of AMVETS Post #5, The 1968 Exhibit, and other Minnesota History Center collections.
Xavier Tavera’s large-scale portraits of Mexican and Mexican-American veterans set masterful stages for layered and complex stories. The exhibit conveys the reactions, sense of humor, pride, and amusement of men returning from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam to live in St. Paul’s West Side, where they had to start their own AMVETS post because established veterans' clubs in town did not allow them membership. AMVETS Post #5 is on view at the Minnesota History Center until April 22, 2018.
