Originally from Los Angeles, Rodolfo Marron III moved with his family to Kansas City’s Westside neighborhood in the early 1990s. In conjunction with the Library’s exhibit of his art, This is for La Raza, he discusses his Chicanx background and the inspiration he draws from home altars, low riders, Catholic imagery, slang, and other elements of his Westside upbringing.
