Organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art presents the rich and varied contributions of Latino artists in the United States since the mid-20th century, when the concept of a collective Latino identity began to emerge. Our America showcases the rich diversity of Latino communities in the United States and features artists of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Dominican descent, as well as other Latin American groups with deep roots in the United States. It explores how Latino artists shaped the artistic movements of their day and recalibrated key themes in American art and culture. The exhibition presents works in all media by more than 50 leading modern and contemporary artists.
