Latino Art and Artists

Smithsonian collections reflect the rich diversity of Latino art and artists. The Smithsonian American Art Museum's Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art (October 24, 2013–March 2, 2014) explored how Latino artists shaped the artistic movements of their day and recalibrated key themes in American art and culture. Well-known visual artists like Frida Kahlo share an artistic heritage with Indigenous American artists and craftspeople as well as Pablo Picasso and other Spanish artists. Out of this exciting mix, new art forms have emerged.
