Boca Raton Museum of Art Presents Latin American Art from the Museum Collection

The Boca Raton Museum of Art presents Latin American Art from the Museum Collection, on view through May 1, 2011.

Twentieth-century and contemporary Latin American art is international in nature, and its leading figures have achieved international stature. This sampling of Latin American art from the Museum’s collections introduces the work of several major Latin American artists whose works reflect the interaction of politics, society and art, a dialogue between avant-garde movements and “indigenist” thinking, and the search for cultural -identity.

Twenty works by many of the most important 20th century Latin American artists range from the traditional figurative sculpture of Francisco Zúñiga, to the the modernism of Rufino Tamayo and Matta, the contemporary abstraction of Enrique Castro-Cid and Carlos Cruz-Diez, and the poetic realism of Julio Larraz.

This exhibition is organized by the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

The mission of the Boca Raton Museum of Art is to enhance the appreciation and understanding of the visual arts by enriching the lives of visitors to, and residents of, our diverse community, through the acquisition and maintenance of a permanent collection, from antiquity to the present reflecting the art of world cultures, and the presentation of high-quality and varied exhibitions with related educational programs and special events. The Museum further contributes to this learning process by providing hands-on instruction at its Studio School, which offers fine art, craft and interdisciplinary classes, workshops and a summer camp for children.
