[Fayetteville, North Carolina] – The Arts Council of Fayetteville is connecting our communities through the inspirational modern and contemporary artistry of Hispanic and Latino cultures with its inaugural LatinXhibit, a Hispanic Heritage Month Exhibit.
LatinXhibit celebrates the rich and diverse influence Hispanic and Latino artists have on the history and impact of mainstream American art.
The Arts Center’s gallery flourishes with the vision, flair, and passion of art pieces created by prominent and emerging Hispanic and Latino artists from across the country. This collection of extraordinary modern and contemporary artwork and sculptures express the beauty of diversity through the artistry and perspective of Hispanic and Latino visionaries.
On display now through October 16th, the exhibition is free to attend.
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 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.

LatinXhibit is presented by the Arts Council of Fayetteville and the North Carolina Arts Council.
