A collection of street art and graphics from Perú are on display around the Lunder Arts Center through December 15. The work can be seen in the lower level Spotlight gallery, first floor atrium, and on the second floor.

Born in the 1980s as the result of a clash between indigenous and colonial cultures, Chicha art has long been associated with Peru’s “lower classes.” Originally used to advertise musical events, it has been revived by a new generation of artists and activists. Its bold color palette pays homage to the Andean culture that gives the streets of Lima their identity.

Artists in the show include: Amapolay, Familia Gutierrez, LU.CU.MA., Monky, Nación Chicha, Moisés Sants and Elliot Tupac.
