Heulga! Photographs from the Frontlines by Jorge Corralejo was scheduled to open in mid-March 2020, when the state of California, the United States of America, and most of the world shutdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic. While online visitors had the opportunity to explore a 3D virtual version of the exhibit, the powerful story of Huelga! is best experienced in-person.
Huelga! is a photography exhibit that focuses on the 1970’s labor strikes and is featured alongside memorabilia from the collection of longtime local activist and civic leader, Jorge Corralejo. Visitors will learn about Jorge’s time with United Farm Workers, working alongside Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta from the Boston A & P strikes to the streets of Oxnard.
