Inclusion and Engagement at the Museum of Latin

This year, the Museum expanded its definition of Latin American art to include Chicano and Latino art. Prior to this action, MOLAA focused on the work of artists who lived and worked in Latin America. With the opening of Mex/LA, MOLAA’s 2011 Pacific Standard Time exhibition, the Museum began to move in a new direction to embrace the breadth of Latin American art. Join Assistant Curator Edward Hayes, Jr. for a panel discussion on Sunday, January 18th inclusion from the perspective of museum education, curatorial programming, and collecting. 214
