Diverse Visions/Diverse Voices: Hispanic Artists at Cleveland Clinic: Coinciding with Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15), this exhibition of art from Cleveland Clinic’s Art Collection puts the diversity of Hispanic and Latino culture on vivid display. Hispanic and Latino are pan-ethnic terms that are generally used to describe people with links to Latin American cultures found in the Caribbean, North, Central, and South America—an area with 34 countries and more than 448 spoken languages.
Just as Hispanic people are diverse, so is their art. The artists in this exhibition — a small sampling of Hispanic artists in the collection — use a variety of mediums and genres to explore social and aesthetic concerns. Themes like mapping, architecture, portraiture and abstraction are used to examine colonialism, migration and identity and to celebrate the richness of Hispanic heritage.
