Responding to the vacant spaces in the American educational and cultural landscape in 2015 Museo Eduardo Carrillo committed to developing a series for educators, families, artists and community centers based on Contemporary Latino Art in order to reach teens and their advocates.
Artist Eduardo Carrillo (1937-1997) made sure that the generations of students he taught at the University of California Santa Cruz and informally in the community, would include exposure to the art of Meso America, Mexican Americans and Chicanos.
His commitment to this launched the landmark Califas Conference (1982), a consortium of artists, professors and scholars who presented, debated and championed this broad group yet largely unknown group.
Museo Eduardo Carrillo, an online museum, is launching the “Hablamos Juntos: together we speak- Contemporary Latino Artists” series available to all for free.
We have partnered with Pajaro Valley Arts, a regional gallery committed to serving the community through art, to advance our mutual objectives of bringing Latino art directly to the widest audience. We have a special conviction that teens will especially benefit and so this series shows the contributions and diverse pathways each artist has taken. In the words of the writer Lucille Clifton we offer “Mirrors and Windows” to our viewers and strive to build bridges of understanding.
