It is with deep regret that Coronado Studio announces the passing of its founder, the Chicano painter and printmaker, cultural activist and arts educator Sam Z. Coronado.
Coronado impacted countless individuals in his lifetime by virtue of his dedication to fine art and the various mediums and outlets it provides. He was a force of considerable influence as founder of the Serie Project and Coronado Studio, co-founder of Mexic-Arte Museum, and a contributor to many other organizations and artists. Our prayers go out to his family, friends, and the many people who have had the pleasure of knowing and working with him throughout his remarkable life. To read more about Sam Z.
