Archival materials documenting the Latino Museum’s exhibition history, along with featured work by three visual artists, highlight LA's Chicano and Latino art and culture.

From 1995 to 2000, the Latino Museum of History, Art and Culture presented exhibitions and programs celebrating the historical, artistic, and cultural contributions of Latinos in the United States. Located in downtown Los Angeles, home to the largest concentration of Mexicans living outside of Mexico, the Latino Museum was the first major institution in Southern California to address this subject. Materials documenting the Latino Museum’s exhibition history are now housed in Unique and Special Collections at California State University Channel Islands. The Latino Museum , on view at the Broome Library Gallery, will comprise a selection of edited video interviews, graphic materials, print materials and ephemera, educating viewers about the history of Chicano and Latino art and culture in Los Angeles and about the cultural impact of the museum itself. Concurrently, the Napa Hall Gallery will present works by three artists who figure prominently in the Latino Museum archives: Vibiana Aparicio’s mixed media compositions, Oscar Castillo’s photographs and Leo Limón’s paintings.
