Our America - Carmen Ramos; Tomas Ybarra-Frausto (Introduction)
Call Number: N6538.H58 S65 2014 (Oversize)
This book seeks to "recalibrate" enduring concepts about American national culture by exploring how one group of artists--those of Latin American descent and heritage--express their relationship to American art, history, and culture. E. Carmen Ramos addresses the whole issue of the definition of "Latino art" and how this emerged within the context of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s as American artists of Latino descent (Mexican American, Puerto Rican, Cuban American, and, more recently, Dominican) began to give a tangible face to their culture and history.

The last decade has seen the rise of artists who have rejected academia to embrace urban culture as their inspiration. The exhibition Viva la Revoluci n: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape represents the pinnacle of this progression through an epic convergence of 20 artists from around the world.
