The Los Angeles Times reports on the opening of "Phantom Sightings: Art After the Chicano Movement," a new show at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The article reports that this is the first major show of Chicano art at the museum since 1987. One of the featured artists is Ken Gonzales-Day, who published Lynching in the West in 2006. His work in the show "deals with the lynching of Mexican Americans in California by digitally erasing the victims from historic photos."
