Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art
This exhibition features art created since the 1950s, when long-standing Latino communities increasingly demanded equal rights, the island of Puerto Rico became a commonwealth of the United States, and newer arrivals reached the American mainland. As more and more Latino artists entered art schools, they created works stimulated by their collective group histories and U.S. artistic context. Their related cultural and historical experiences, which for some included being marginalized within American society, often shaped their artistic perspectives. An online exhibit from the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
