Cultural Impact On Mainstream American Art

Throughout history, creative ventures by Hispanic and Latino artists were pushed to the background of mainstream American art and seldomly given the opportunity to be center stage. Nevertheless, the rise and significance of artistic Hispanic and Latino trailblazers have made their mark as leading innovators in the art scene, thus, solidifying their rightful place in the progression of American art and defining their relevance and impact throughout all art disciplines.

Today, the contributions of Hispanic and Latino artists are undeniable as they continue to change the face of artistic explorations globally with new curatorial narratives that are driven by their cultural experiences.

Making A Difference In Our Community

Making the inaugural LatinXhibit a permanent exhibition presented annually, the Arts Council will continue to support Hispanic Heritage Month by introducing our community to a talented network of local and national Hispanic and Latino artists who will leave a lasting impression on the downtown Fayetteville art experience.
