During the month of August at the Chicano Humanities and Arts Council, Vigil and three other artists are collaborating on their own Death Cart, which will be the centerpiece of an exhibition showcasing all four artists individual work. Although he concedes that its not Holy Week now, Vigil says, The reason were bringing it out now is we just wanted to do a contemporary version. The items on the cart represent current human vices, like cards, alcohol, drug paraphernalia stuff like that.
And, really, when were talking about death carts, who needs a reason? The exhibit, titled Cada Mente es un Mundo (Every Mind Is a World), features the work of Jerry Vigil, Stephan Armijo, Michael Canada and Rob Yancey. It opens tonight a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. at CHAC, 772 Santa Fe Drive, and stays up through August 28; for information, call 303-571-0440 or visit www.chacweb.org.
