"Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art" presents the rich and varied contributions of Latino artists in the United States since the mid-20th century, when the concept of a collective Latino identity began to emerge. The exhibition is drawn entirely from the Smithsonian American Art Museum's pioneering collection of Latino art. It explores how Latino artists shaped the artistic movements of their day and recalibrated key themes in American art and culture. "Our America" presents a picture of an evolving national culture that challenges expectations of what is meant by "American" and "Latino."
