Andrea Chavarin



Andrea Chavarín loves life, the sound of laughter, a good book, and listening to nature when she walks. She grew up between two cities divided by a border. Andrea loves learning from others and listening to their stories. She is an art historian, a sister, a mother, an independent curator, a cello player, and an illustrator.

She specializes in Latin American Art, especially Pre-contact Mesoamerican and Colonial Art. Her main research interests are Latin American Colonial art, colonial legacies in contemporary visual culture, Indigenous resistance in colonial New Spain, and indigenous material culture. She received an MA with honors in museum studies from Georgetown University in 2021, creating a research Capstone thesis on museum community outreach and inclusion in Latinx communities. Chavarin graduated with honors with a double major in Art History and Anthropological Archaeology from UC San Diego.

She has worked in many art institutions like the Hirshhorn Smithsonian Museum (DC), the Mexican Cultural Institute (DC), The Stuart Collection (CA), Museo Templo Mayor (MX), and the San Diego Museum of Art (CA), among others.


She hosts a literature podcast called “Señorita Lechuga” with Yolanda Morales, a poet and a renowned journalist on culture and migration. Her audience reaches fifty thousand listeners in Latin America, and she aims to enrich the young female audience with innovative, creative, and fun analyses of Iberoamerican literary works.


In January 2024, her book Caminemos Juntas (Co-authored with Yolanda Morales, Editorial Planeta, 2024) will be published in all Mexican libraries.
