Latines / Latin hood - A Collective of 13 DC-based artists share their vision of what it means to live, feel, grow and evolve as Latinos ... coming into a new reality and a new life, in a place where the language is different, the flavors different and everything takes shape differently. This event gives testimony to the experience of what they've seen, heard, touched, felt – translated and transposed through word, photography, painting, music and installation.
The Art Show will be on view from February 7th - February 13th. Participating artists include: Elva Lovos, Lázaro Batista, Francisco Rosario, Mauricio López, Ronald Chacón, Iván Mendizábal, Luis Peralta, Wilfredo Valladares, Katya Miranda y Alberto Roblest. Forty percent of sales from the exhibition are directed to the Fondo Solidario para los Salvadoreños en el Exterior, FOSSALEX” or the Solidarity Fund for El Salvadorans Living in the Exterior, a non-profit whose mission is to help families with repatriation or funeral expenses of departed family members passing in the DC Metro area.
The Art Show will be on view from 9:00am - 5:00pm Monday through Thursday, Friday from 9:00am to 10:00pm, Saturday from 5:00pm - 10:00pm and Sunday 1:00pm - 4:00pm.
