Hispanic Heritage Art Exhibit 2015 begins Sept. 1
A special art exhibition to recognize Hispanic Heritage Month will open at the San Bernardino County Museum on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015. “Hispanic Heritage Art Exhibit 2015” is organized and curated by the Inland Empire Latino Art Association. It features works by more than three dozen artists from the Inland Empire and elsewhere in North America, South America, and Europe. A reception at the museum on Friday, Sept. 4 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. is open to the public. Hispanic Heritage Art 2015 will continue through Sept. 27 and is included with paid museum admission.
“In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we will embrace the vast cultural differences that diversify the Hispanic culture, and celebrate our accomplishments and contributions to American culture through the form of visual arts,” said Brad Borrero of the IELAA. “This year’s exhibition theme is ‘a non-traditional experience.’ The art will reflect diverse imagery, representing each artist’s own experiences and expressions on what it means to be associated with the Hispanic community.”
Hispanic Heritage Art Exhibit 2015 and the County Museum’s other exciting events and exhibits reflect the effort by the Board of Supervisors to achieve the Countywide Vision by celebrating arts, culture, and education in the county, creating quality of life for residents and visitors.
