PAWTUCKET- The City of Pawtucket and the Advisory Commission on Arts and Culture is set to host its first exhibit highlighting Latino artists in Pawtucket and the Blackstone Valley. “Latino Roots” is an exhibit that depicts a myriad of expressions and styles ranging from tropi-pop, photography, stylized realism, Andean mysticism, and abstract painting. Artists come from backgrounds such as Colombia, Cuba, Peru, and the Dominican Republic.
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the exhibit will run from September 12th to November 30th, 2022.
“The City is delighted to present this first-time exhibition of Latino artists in Pawtucket and the Blackstone Valley,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “As a city committed to arts and culture, we are delighted to be able to share the work from a predominant Latino community in Pawtucket.”
“Pawtucket is the city of the arts, and we are very excited to showcase the artistic and musical talents of our Latino artists in the newly refurbished Pawtucket City Hall Gallery” states Miriam Plitt, Chairwoman of the city’s Advisory Commission on Arts and Culture.
Nilton Cardenas, local artist who played a key role in executing this exhibit says, “Through the arts we can connect and learn about other cultures, their traditions, and customs, which takes us on a magical journey into the past, so we can understand our present and our future.”
We invite everyone to attend our opening reception to celebrate our local Latino artists and the contributions of Latinos in Pawtucket.
