"Americanos: Latino Life in the United States"
2000-01-22 until 2000-01-26
Eiteljorg Museum
Indianapolis, IN, USA United States of America

Americanos: Latino Life in the United States presents a self-portrait of the country's largest-growing ethnic group. The bilingual exhibition's 120 photographs by 30 of the nation's top photojournalists explore the breadth and variety of the American Latino experience - families, children and youth, labor, community, the arts. And the message comes through loud and clear: Hispanics don't fit a stereotype.

This exhibition are of people from all walks of life and from the many cultures that fall under the terms 'Latino' and 'Hispanic' - Chicano, Central American, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Bolivian, Argentinian, Colombian, Panamanian, Brazilian, Dominican, Asian Latino and Anglo Latino.

The local community will be included in the Indianapolis presentation of this national traveling exhibition. Latino Indianapolis will be a display of photographs taken by photographers at The Indianapolis Star newspaper of the city's Hispanic community, along with statistics provided by the Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis Polis Center. IUPUI's Cultural Arts Gallery, within walking distance of the Eiteljorg, will present Somos un pueblo (We are a community), a photographic exhibition of the local Latino population organized by IUPUI students.

Cultural interpreters from Indianapolis will be in the Eiteljorg to share their own personal experiences.

You can order the exhibition catalogue from White River Trader.
