In a partnership with the Governor’s Advisory Council on Hispanic Affairs (GACHA), the Biggs Museum will exhibit the works of contemporary Hispanic artists living or working in the State of Delaware and the Mid-Atlantic Region. This exhibition will commemorate the declaration of the Hispanic Heritage Month Proclamation at the Museum on September 15, 2009. The exhibition will be strategically placed throughout Galleries Two through Seven and the Old Stair Hall Gallery alongside the Museum’s permanent collection of fine and decorative arts of the 18th and early 19th centuries that were made and used within the State of Delaware. The contemporary Hispanic works displayed will symbolically represent the parallel currents of Early-American/Spanish culture alongside the development of the American mainstream. The exhibition will highlight contrasts and continuity between the influences of contemporary Hispanic and early-American fine and decorative arts.
