Latino Artists: Highlights From the AT&T Art Collection
at the Latino Cultural Center
Through January 5, 2013
Latino Artists: Highlights From the AT&T Art Collection is a selection of artwork by Latino artists from the AT&T Art Collection. Artists in the collection hail from Colombia to California; the artwork represents a wide array of media, style and subject matter, truly encapsulating the diverse backgrounds and influences that inform the Latino experience.
Latino Artists: Highlights from the AT&T Collection presents a thoughtful and diverse selection of works by artists significant to the early Chicano art movement and those who have followed in their footsteps. The works document a range of notable achievements by Latino artists over the past fifty years as they collectively established themselves within the greater art community. By presenting a variety of experiences and approaches, this exhibition examines how Latino artists have served their community’s need to converse with other cultures and with one another. As our country evolves and diversifies even further, Latino artists continue to play an increasingly important role in contemporary art and society.
“It is a privilege for AT&T to be involved in this exhibit that brings the Latino experience to life through art,” said Fred Maldonado, regional director of external affairs for AT&T. “This exhibition will give the Dallas community an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Latino culture through 50 years’ worth of artwork created by a diverse set of Chicano artists.”
