Los Angeles Times: Guadalupe Rosales used Instagram to create an archive of Chicano youth of the ’90s — now it’s an art installation. “‘Veteranas and Rucas’ began as a lark. It was 2015 and Rosales posted a few ’90s images to Instagram and invited others to send in their own ‘throwback photos.’ Of that initial post, she says, ‘I was just trying to connect with my family and culture.’ The connections poured in. Readers from all over — Venice, El Monte, Santa Ana, Ontario and Boyle Heights — submitted hundreds of digital images. Others submitted physical photographs, articles of clothing and old party flyers. Soon after, as the submissions began to span multiple decades, she started a second Instagram account, Map Pointz, devoted specifically to ’90s party culture.” I mentioned Ms. Rosales back in 2016 — linking to a cached version of the article as the original is gone. Glad she’s getting more recognition.
