Somos Latinx

Hispanic Heritage Month September 15 – October 15

A note from the artist:

“To try and encompass the Latin American diaspora is like trying to bottle lightning. There’s no one representation for our people, we are every shade, shape, and sure proud of it. Collage is the only medium that can attempt to capture the intersectionality of Latin culture. By using significant images of historical leaders, like Carlota Lucumi, an enslaved Yoruba woman in Cuba that led multiple uprisings against colonizer forces, Roberto Clemente a Puerto Rican baseball player who was a hero on and off the field, Rigoberta Menchu, a Guatemalan woman who advocated for Indigenous rights and many others, we can begin to paint a picture of what it means to be a Latinx.”
