"Arte Latino: Treasures from the Smithsonian American Art Museum"
2000-12-23 until 2001-02-18
Orlando Museum of Art
Orlando, FL, USA United States of America

Arte Latino: Treasures from the Smithsonian American Art Museum reveals the wide range of expression by artists of Latin heritage living in the United States from the 18th through the 20th Centuries. Paintings and sculptures created for church use as well as objects intended for personal devotion by Jose Campeche and George Lopez reveal the distinctive aesthetic of religious traditions in Puerto Rico and the American Southwest. Portraits of family members, friends and famous individuals by Judith Baca, Amalia Mesa-Bains and others honor members in the community. Maria Brito and Abelardo Morell evoke places real or imagined that resonate with memories of the past as well as significance for the present. Emanual Martinez, Chaz Bojorquez and others deal with activism and dialogue, exploring art as a vehicle for social action. Artists such as Carlos Alfonzo and Alfredo Arreguin construct new worlds of imagination, dreams and occasionally nightmares.
