Art did not enter the life of Ms. Ruby Chacon through schools or extracurricular activities - it came from her uncle Covito. Ruby is deeply committed to the Latino culture and created Mestizo Gallery, followed by the Mestizo Institute of Culture and Arts (MICA), the first Art Institute of the Americas in the state of Utah, to bring Latino artwork to the local art scene. In 1998 she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing at the University of Utah.
