Artist Immigrants of Washington

June 18 through August 14, 2016

Alper Initiative for Washington Art

This exhibition celebrates ten artists who left Latin America for many different reasons over the last sixty years—primarily for safety, freedom, and opportunity—and made their homes, and their artistic careers and contributions, in the Washington region. They include Joan Belmar and Juan Downey from Chile, Carolina Mayorga from Colombia, Ric Garcia, Lennox Campello, & Jose Ygnacio Bermudez from Cuba, Muriel Hasbu
from El Salvador, Frida Larios from Honduras, Irene Clouthier from Mexico, and Naśl Ojeda from Uruguay. They brought with them artistic traditions that took root and bore fruit here in the United States.
