Xicanx Baseball Hat
Don Clemente Jacques
This baseball-style hat bears the iconic "La Loteria" cards La Luna and El Corazon, meaning the moon and the heart. The design is embroidered onto the front of a stark black hat. The back of the hat features a sizeable velcro strap, with "Xicanx" printed onto the back.
This hat is a limited edition part of MOA's current featured exhibition, Xicanx: Dreamers + Changemakers. The fight by Xicanx artists for social justice began generations ago and continues to this day. Their art and their activism remain vital in the movement toward social justice for all.
The Mexican lotería ("lottery") is a popular board game in Mexico and is a large, deeply-rooted part of Mexican culture. As the name implies, winning depends on luck. Lotería is similar to Bingo, but it has characters and objects instead of letters and numbers. Over time, the cards have become symbols of Mexican identity. This mug features the most recognized version of lotería, the “Don Clemente Gallo” rendition, introduced into Mexico in 1887 by the French businessman, Don Clemente Jacques.
