Latino Art Now! provides a unique forum for scholars, curators, collectors, arts professionals, and artists to engage with the critical issues for Latino art in the 21st century

-Chon A. Noriega, Director, UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center

Latinos and Latinas have always created American Art-- yet American Art history hasn’t always included Latinos and Latinas. Current research projects, publications, and dialogs about Latino art, artists, and institutions are exploding and expanding art historical myths of what Latino art is. It is a thrilling time to be in the field.

-Tey Marianna Nunn, Ph.D.
Director rand Chief Curator National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum and Visual Arts Program

Latino Art Now! 2013 is the fourth annual convening of scholars to discuss the analysis, interpretation, and historical development of U.S. Latino art. Please join us at this exciting gathering!

-Dr. Tomás Ybarra Frausto

Latino Art Now! is the premier venue designed to explore the full richness and depth of Latino art. We look forward to welcoming the public and a whole community of scholars and artists who are eager to dialogue about the wide ranging scope of Latino artistic production in the United States. Timed to coincide with the exhibition Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art, presented at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington DC will be the place to be in the Fall of 2013. We look forward to your participation!

-Chon A. Noriega, Director, UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center

This is the century of Latino artists. In the next decades we will witness the expansion of an American art scene that continues to evolve and acknowledge the contributions of new Latino talent.
