With great sadness, the city of Los Angeles mourns the passing of the trail breaking artist Gilbert "Magu" Lujan. Please read Peter Clothier's heartfelt words on the Huffington Post:

Followers of the contemporary art scene -- and indeed Chicano art enthusiasts everywhere -- will want to hear of this opportunity to come to the support of one of its most important pioneers and practitioners. Gilbert "Magu" Lujan is currently in a life-and-death battle with cancer, and is caught up in the pernicious web of our national health care nightmare. Friends and family are staging a series of fund-raising events in August to help with medical costs and the preservation of Magu's legacy. Please continue at Gilbert "Magu" Lujan: A Benefit
