Latino Art DestinationThursday, September 28, 2023, 6:00 - 9:00pm | 7:00pm Remarks
Latino Arts Project is proud to sponsor the Hispanic Heritage Month community celebration of Dallas’ newest Latino Art destination. It’s more than a new Dallas County Courthouse, built under the supervision of Dallas County Commissioner Dr Elba Garcia, DDS, it’s also a place for all County residents and visitors to enjoy Latino Art in a public space.
Curated by Jorge Baldor, the five local artists that were selected represent a variety of art forms, including a 10’ round mosaic and paintings by renown artist Viola Delgado, a wall sized stone sculpture by recognized Eliseo Garcia, metal sculptures by Oak Cliff native Manuel Sarmiento, outdoor murals by Jesus Alva and a monumental painting by Nicolas Gonzalez. Woven textiles and photography are also art of the collection, as well the historical original safe of Oak Cliff, before it was incorporated into Dallas.
Please register, come meet the artists and don’t miss this fun family event! Event sponsorship opportunities are available.
Different Venues, Same Mission
Latino Arts Project is designed to bring a greater understanding of Latino art, history and culture through multicultural exhibitions and community programs in partnership with local, national and international artists and institutions.
True to its intended “pop-up” museum experience, Latino Arts Project will resurface in different venues from time to time but with the same mission — to create a better understanding of the impact art has on community conversation and how that discourse then impacts art.
Latino Arts Project was founded in 2019 by Jorge Baldor.
