‘Latino Spirit: Visual Heritage’ to be displayed at UT

 The University of Toledo’s Office of Multicultural Student Services will present an art exhibit, “Latino Spirit: Visual Heritage,” from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 in Student Union Room 2500 on Main Campus to coincide with Hispanic Heritage Month activities.

“The selection of works has a wide variety of art that includes silk-screen, intaglio print process, woodcuts, pastels and acrylic,” said Nina Grant, director of the Office of Multicultural Student Services. “All of the works represent the strong visual graphic traditions and contributions by Hispanic and Latino artists to contemporary art.”

Works featured in the exhibit are by David Alfaro Siqueiros, Diego Rivera, José Orozco, Antoni Tápies, Rupert García, Enrique Chagoya, Manuel Neri, Harry Louie, Cruz Ortiz and Enrique Ortiz.

Siqueiros, Rivera and Orozco are responsible for redefining modern art in Mexico through their socially conscious public murals, according to Grant.

García is a nationally renowned California Chicano who does line etching, and Chagoya is known for his combination of contemporary pop art with pre-Hispanic Mayan influence, Grant said.

She added that Cruz Ortiz and Enrique Ortiz are influenced by conflicting values and images of commercial and popular culture to create silk-screened prints and tin retablos.

The free, public exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, contact the UT Office of Multicultural Student Services at 419.530.2261.
