OMAHA - Sunday, Aug. 30 is the final day to submit works to “Latino Artists: Exhibition and Conversation” – Omaha’s first juried exhibition aimed at making the presence and work of Latino/Latin American artists in the metro area visible to the community at large.
In addition to the artwork displayed, the exhibition will be the starting point for a continuing dialogue about Latinos in art and the diverse meanings, themes, history and transnational spaces of Latino art, ideas and creativity.
Any self-identified Latino or Latina, Latin American, Hispanic, Mexican, Central American, Boricua, South American, Chicano/a, and others alike are encouraged to participate in this juried show. Eligible media include drawing, printmaking, painting, photography, 3D art, and digital media.
Artists can submit up to three pieces of their work at www.unomaha.edu/artistregistration.php no later than 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 30.
More details and submission requirements are available on the Call to Artists, available at http://www.unomaha.edu/ollas/pdf/CallToArtists2015.pdf.
The selected works of art will be on display at the Bancroft Street Market (2702 S. 10th St. in Omaha) from September 18 through October 2, 2015, and will be complimented by a series of events and panel discussions throughout those two weeks.
The project was born out of a collaborative effort between the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS), UNO faculty and UNO students from the arts and humanities.
If you have questions about the exhibit, please contact the OLLAS office at 402.554.3835 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
