Murals Speak Up: A Conversation with Muralist Joseph ‘Nuke’ Montalvo

Friday, September 29, 2023, 1:00-2:00pm
Pavilion Gallery, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art

Join artist Joseph ‘Nuke’ Montalvo for a conversation about the murals he created in 2000 for the Chicana/o Latina/o Student Alliance (ChiLaStAl), originally hung in Wilson-Short Hall. The murals were moved to the CUB in 2017, where they are now part of the Chicanx Latinx Student Center. Muralist Montalvo will join in conversation with Lucila Loera, Executive Director of the Office for Access & Opportunity in the Division of Students Affairs; Dr. Raymond Herrera, Associate Vice Provost of WSU’s Graduate School and Director of the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program; and Rafael Pruneda, Bridges Transfer Advisor, WSU Tri-Cities. Loera, Herrera, and Pruneda were involved in the creation of the murals in 2000 and their relocation to the current Chicanx Latinx Student Center in 2017.

About the Artist: Joseph ‘Nuke’ Montalvo, who is based in Los Angeles, is visiting campus to complete conservation and preservation work on the murals, to offer an artist’s talk titled “The Untold Stories: Using Art as a Tool for Revolution and Healing,” and to run a painting workshop hosted by Global Campus. The artist’s talk and painting workshop will take place in the evening on September 29 at the Elson Floyd Cultural Center. Join us at the museum from 1-2pm on Friday September 29 for a more intimate conversation about the history of Nuke’s murals at WSU.
