Centro Cultural Aztlan is pleased to present the 47th annual Segundo de Febrero exhibition titled El Segundo de Febrero: Seguimos.

Centro Cultural Aztlan has produced and presented the annual Segundo de Febrero exhibit since 1977 in an effort to preserve Mexican American history and culture. This exhibit commemorates the 176th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, the ending of the U.S. Mexican war, and the redistribution of a border—creating a new bicultural citizenry with a new consciousness of Mexican American dual identity, history, culture, and traditions.

In Texas, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo moved the U.S.-Mexico border down to el Río Bravo and, as a result, Mexico lost a great part of its territory to the United States. This year’s exhibit—Seguimos—is a tribute to those who chose to stay on their land and become U.S. citizens, and to Mexican immigrants who have arrived since then and had a cultural impact on the U.S. Seguimos is a living testament to the resilience and creativity born from cultural diaspora. The exhibit explores themes of migration, adaptation, coexistence, and the duality of Mexican-American identity as a culture in constant evolution. This exhibit is also a reminder that, despite the challenges our people face, we persist and amplify our voices through artistic expression. Our roots continue to nurture the land we now share. The work of each artist shares experiences with the effort to inspire the fight for justice and equality. These works shine as beacons, guiding us toward a future where, together, we continue to write the story of our Mexican-American identity.

Opening Reception:

Friday, February 2nd, 2024

The exhibit is free and open to the public and will be on view through February 29th, 2024. Monday-Thursday, 10:00am-4:00pm, except for Holidays.
