Close to Home: Latinx Art and Identity
Please note, this event has expired.
Prints and paintings from the collection of Drs. Harriett and Ricardo Romo
The prints and paintings in this exhibition assert Latinx identity as specific, powerful, and ancient in origin. The artists declare their pride in who they are, a people descendant from ancient indigenous civilizations, connected to their land, nurturers of their children, but also creators of iconic images serving as potent standard bearers to any outsider.
