San Diego (KUSI) – Artist Yolanda Lopez from Barrio Logan has died.
Lopez graduated from Lincoln High with a bachelor’s degree in painting and drawing from San Diego State University and a master’s degree in art from the University of California, San Diego.
She received widespread attention for her reconsiderated paintings of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Her virgin depictions were some of the most widely distributed images of Chicano artists of her generation.
They provided Latina with a presentation of the female god who was outside the Catholic system.
Lopez died of cancer with his son at his home in San Francisco on Friday morning.
She was 79 years old.
Alessandra Moctezma, a professor of art and Chicano studies at San Diego Mesa College, joined KUSI’s Ginger Jeffreys Good evening in San Diego to discuss Lopez’s life and heritage.
