The grassroots Chicano theater group,
Teatro Cometa, was founded in 1979 and was active
throughout 1980s in and around Fullerton, California. Embodying "Rasquachismo,"
Teatro Cometa endeavored to use their art as a teaching tool,
to educate people about significant issues within their community. Their work
incorporated topics such as gang violence and immigration, including issues facing
undocumented workers. César Flores was a founding member of the troupe. The collection
contains Mr. Flores’ posters, photographs, and newspaper clippings.
