Latino Arts

Latino Arts Inc. invites visitors to learn more about different cultures and forms of artistic expression through its new exhibit “Celebrating Our Shared Roots,” which focuses on mediums and artmaking traditions throughout Mexico and from First Nations tribes. 

The exhibit is a collaboration with The Mexican Arts Collective run by Gabriela Marvan, Little Eagle Arts Foundation (LEAF), founded by Melanie Tallmadge Saintz of the Ho-Chunk Nation and Akii Maps, founded by Jesus Avila and Rodolfo Ramirez. It celebrates cultural traditions and ancestry, with viewers, through singular works of art that combine contemporary and traditional art-making techniques.

“Celebrating our Shared Roots” is on display through Feb. 23. Latino Arts Inc. kindly requests a $1 donation.
