> DESCRIPTION

Latin America’s diverse places, histories and cultures, and the artwork informed by them, are the inspiration for this vibrant exhibition. Forty-two women from varied backgrounds, not all of Latin American decent, but all influenced by Latin America, will share the gallery space to exhibit their creations in various media, from painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography to assemblages and video work.
