MOLAA’s Board unanimously passed a resolution that clarified the definition of Latin American art to include Chicano art or art created by people of Latin American descent who have lived exclusively in the United States. The Museum can now officially open its doors to the entire Latino community – those living in their native countries, the U.S. or abroad and is already planning its first Biennial of Latin(o) American Art in 2016 in conjunction with MOLAA’s 20th anniversary. You can listen to our President and CEO Stuart A. Ashman speak about the new resolution here.
Mark your calendars and join us on Saturday, June 28 at 7:00pm for the opening of Fabelo’s Anatomy. This exhibition offers a glimpse into the complex world of imagery emerging from the mind of one of Cuba’s most compelling artists, Roberto Fabelo. This is his first solo museum exhibition in the United States.
