Timed with Día de Muertos/Day of the Dead (October 31–November 2 in the US), internationally acclaimed Mexican artist Betsabeé Romero will unveil her site-specific installation An Altar in Their Memory / Un Altar en Su Memoria at Latino Arts Project on Tuesday, October 29. On view through November 17, the artist’s installation elements were delayed at the border by customs. Therefore, the exhibition will open nine days after the originally planned exhibition date. Perhaps fittingly, one aspect of the installation tackles immigration and migrants crossing the border.

The Latino Arts Project is a museum, not a gallery. And the difference is crucial.
Galleries dominate Dragon Street, but the difference is, galleries are driven by profit.
The Latino Arts Project is driven by passion — not profit. The artwork on its walls and floor will not be sold. Instead, it will serve as the driving force of a philosophical mission shared by two men who talk endlessly about art, culture and community, and a shared humanity in Dallas.
