Expand your appreciation for Latino art and culture by visiting this permanent pop-up
Cristina and Harry Lynch explore Dallas’ newest museum.
The Latino Center for Leadership Development has introduced a pop-up nonprofit museum called the Latino Arts Project, and is kicking off the new initiative with the first of many rotating exhibitions, Mexican Modern Sculpture: A Study of the Artists which will run through September 22. This exceptionally curated exhibition features the work of nine post-revolution modernist sculptors from five Mexican regions who were contemporaries of more famous artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, and is the only venue in the US for this collection. The Latino Arts Project is hosting bilingual guided tours for organizations and monthly seminars to ensure that everyone in the Dallas community has access to the arts. LAP executive director Carlos Gonzalez-Jaime explains, “Reflective of the melting pot that is Texas, inclusion will be a key element of the museum. Our mission for the Latino Arts Project is to be at the forefront of diversifying the artistic and cultural landscape.” 1330 Dragon Street, latinoartsproject.org
