PRLog - Mar. 10, 2014 - KENOSHA, Wis. -- FREE ART EXHIBIT AT THE KENOSHA PUBLIC MUSEUM ESTAMOS AQUI “We Are Here” A Mexican-American, and Latino Artists, Exhibit  APRIL 5TH-May 25th

Estamos Aqui, is a vivid and compelling collection of contemporary prints, by Mexican-American and Latino artists, featuring brilliant colors and sometimes startling imagery.  The artwork featured in this extraordinary exhibit, invites the audience to ask questions about the nature of the cross-cultural exchange leading the artists to find their voices, and express themselves through this specialized silkscreen print technique.  Speaking from the Latino/Chicano perspective, many of these artists share their personal experiences, celebrations, sorrows, challenges and popular culture through these impressive works.

This traveling Exhibit, organized by the University of Arkansas, Little Rock, and Mid-America Arts Alliance-ExhibitsUSA, http://www.eusa.org/exhibit/estamosaqui) brings the complicated blend of languages, ethnicity, and cultural heritages together, representing the common theme of the American story.  The subject matter varies from the sharing of food contributing to cultural understanding, to the celebration of traditions providing a sense of place and identity.

The serigraphs, created by 40 different artists, will be on display in the Touhey Gallery at the Kenosha Public Museums April 5th through May 25th, 2014.

Be sure to watch for the following companion programs in conjunction with the Estamos Aqui exhibit.
