The Crocker Art Museum just opened a new bilingual summer exhibition called “Testimony of the Spirit: Paintings by Eduardo Carrillo.”
Eduardo Carrillo (1938-1997) was a key figure in the Chicano Art Movement in California, known both for his own paintings and for raising the profile of his fellow artists. Eduardo Carrillo taught at Sacramento State for two years, and created his best-known work “Testament of the Holy Spirit” while he lived on H Street in Midtown Sacramento.
Joining Insight to explain Carrillo and his work are Terezita Romo and Kristina Perea. Romo is an art historian and adjunct faculty at the Chicano Studies department of UC Davis. Perea is an associate curator at the Crocker Museum.“Testimony of the Spirit: Paintings by Eduardo Carrillo” will be on view at the Crocker Museum through October 7.
