Whitney Tassie, curator at the University of Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA), will discuss the exhibit, Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art, visiting from the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
This exhibit presents the rich and varied contributions of Latino artists in the United States since the mid-twentieth century, when the concept of a collective Latino identity began to emerge. The exhibition is drawn entirely from the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s pioneering collection of Latino art. It explores how Latino artists shaped the artistic movements of their day and recalibrated key themes in American art and culture.
