Our America presents more than ninety works of art across all media by seventy-two Latino artists active since the mid-twentieth century and gives voice to their broader American experience. Drawn entirely from the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition explores how Latino artists shaped the artistic movements of their day and re calibrated key themes in American art and culture. Additional details are posted on the exhibition’s web page: http://americanart.si.edu/exhibitions/archive/2013/our_america/.
The show will open to the public on October 25, 2013 and will remain on view until March 2, 2014. The Museum is located on 8th and F Streets, N.W. in Washington, D.C. You may see a map of this location by using this link: http://americanart.si.edu/visit/hours/dwrcmap.cfm.
