    Descriptive info: After Adelita: Myths, Heroes, and Revolutionaries.. September 10 - October 28, 2010.. For many decades, the name Adelita has evoked multiple meanings.. Various interpretations of Adelita identify her as a hero, a myth, and a revolutionary.. Popular ballads tell the story of Adelita as a young woman who fought during the Mexican Revolution.. While some believe that she is an actual historical figure, others see her as a composite of the many women who joined in battle during the Revolution.. The image of a female revolutionary, with blouse, skirt, sombrero, and ammunition across her chest, serves as an iconic representation of the Revolution and of Mexican history.. Songs, books, plays, films, and calendars have interpreted Adelita as a sex symbol, a brave champion of the people, and a proto-feminist.. After Adelita.. includes works that express ideas about myths, heroes, and revolutionaries by women artists who work in diverse media, such as  ...   works relate specifically to the Mexican Revolution, while others evoke a broader, more abstract relationship to the idea of Adelita, an icon who inspires myriad meanings.. 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Mexican Revolution.. The Revolution resulted in the loss of more than one million lives and brought destruction to communities across Mexico.. examines how a century later, artists in Chicago create work that can relate both closely and loosely to the most iconic female figure to emerge from this turbulent time in Mexican history.. ” -Amy Galpin.. Amy Galpin - Exhibition Curator.. Amy Galpin is Project Curator for American Art at the San Diego Museum of Art.. Previously, she was Gallery Coordinator at Woman Made Gallery..

She has done post-graduate work at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and abroad at the University of London, Mounts Bay Arts Center, Cornwall, England, Inniemore School of Painting, Isle of Mull, and the International School of Beaux Arts in the South of France.. She has taught at universities and colleges, including Allegheny College, Northern Iowa University, Penn State University, and the University of Florida.. As a scholar, she has also published in national journals, such as Smithsonian�s American Art Journal , in which she describes her discoveries while researching Winslow Homer in Northumberland.. Her watercolors and writing have been featured in American Artist.. Most recently, the U.. U.. World Magazine presented her sculpture Children of Shoah , which is now  ...   recently in contemporary galleries in Decatur, Galesburg, Washington, D.. C.. and Chicago.. I recycle and build from discarded thrown away pieces, such as parts of antique furniture, old tools, the banister of an old stairway, wooden molds, etc.. Some pieces were discovered on a mountain road in Provence; other shapes caught my eye in flea markets and antique shops.. As opposed to the ordinary, practical past use of the wood or metal, I see the forms in a new way.. I take them as I find them, and am challenged and disciplined to work within the limitations of their design to assemble a sculpture in which each shape seems to belong to another by coming together (somewhat magically?) into a final harmonious composition.. I believe that it is necessary for both the artist and the viewer to become partners in the enriching experience of seeing in a new way..
