Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15 – October 15

A note from the artist:

“Latinx/a/os have a rich, complex, and sprawling diaspora. The wealth of the various and unique cultures is found in the different Latinx/a/o communities. Beyond this month, we honor and celebrate our heritage; our shared & distinct histories, sacrifices, stories; and the contributions of our ancestors, whom I hold in my heart and whose strength I lean on, especially during times of doubt, hardship, and pain. This piece is dedicated to my mother, an immigrant from Guatemala, who reminds me all the time of the importance of family love, strength, and unity. I believe that it is a value that communities & cultures across the world can resonate with.”

-Carolina S. Nascimento, Artist
