The Spanish phrase detras de las cortinas translates "behind the curtain." This exhibition features a group of artists whose work alludes to a number of metaphoric curtains. The first curtain that comes to mind is the Orange Curtain-a derogatory term, which connotes a dismissal image of Orange County as a cultural wasteland, void of esthetic sophistication and appreciation for anything that is not bland. In Orange County the Latino community is substantive and rapidly growing, yet historically much of the Latino community has lived in relative anonymity to the larger Orange County community-another metaphoric curtain that this exhibition addresses. Featured artists: Atilano, Emigdio Vasquez, Henry M. Godines, Greg Stone, Matthew Barrios Southgate, Abram Moya, Jose Lozano, Gilbert "Magu" Lujan, and Rosemary Vasquez Tuthill.
