Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art – Member Preview
Please join us for the MFA Member Preview of Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art. This event is free for MFA members and $10 for non-member guests.
Our America is one of the most expansive exhibitions of Latino art ever presented in the Tampa Bay area. It spotlights 75 works by 62 gifted modern and contemporary artists, drawn entirely from the illustrious collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.
The art is as diverse as Latinos themselves. Some works, including vintage posters, respond to political issues and the relationship of Latinos to the dominant Anglo culture. Others correct historical narratives, reclaiming the role of Latinos in the foundation and development of North America.
Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be available. Valet parking available at Bayshore Drive/NE entrance.
Please RSVP by October 19 by calling (727) 896.2667 ext. 210 or by clicking HERE
The exhibition will open to the public on Thursday, October 27.
