The mission of Arte LatinX is to create a biennial art exhibition bringing together LatinX artists from all over the Great Plains, which include; Nebraska, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Kansas and Missouri.
We are extremely excited to announce that UNO/OLLAS ArteLatinX at El Museo Latino has won “Outstanding Group Show” for the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards (OEAA)! This award speaks to the hard work that our OLLAS staff and committee members put forth to create this amazing event. We are very thankful for everyone who made this achievement possible, especially to our supporting partners and incredible participating artists: Belinda Acosta, Gary Brunzo, Daniel Castaneda, Linda Garcia, José Hernández, Katherine Hernandez-Mayorga, Guadalupe Lopez, Lucia Marquez, Slovenka Murray, Stephanie Niverson, Hugo Zamorano, Aaron Olivo, Ilaamen Pelshaw, Daffnie Realpe, Ricardo Trejo, Karmen Valadez, and Bart Vargas.
We hope to continue creating a space for the work of Latinx artists whose work is often invisible and lacks sufficient support to fully flourish. ArteLatinX addresses these challenges by developing and consolidating a new space to showcase the relevance of Latinx artists and creating a dialogue between those in and outside the arts. Stay tuned for ArteLatinX 2022 updates!
