Celebrate! Latin American Heritage, October 24-November 21, 2014. Installation view. Newberg, Oregon: Chelahem Cultural Center, 2014.
The 2014 Latin American Heritage Month Exhibitions will be heavily focused on student artwork from schools in the surrounding areas. The exhibition will feature artists from Newberg High School, Delphian School, and Mountain View Middle School. Students from each school will be creating a variety of artwork that is centered around Latin American cultures as well as the Dia de los Muertos celebration. We will be exhibiting both 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional artwork created by elementary school-age artists all the way to high school-age artists.
A display and video featuring the work of Ecuadorian muralist Paulina Ramirez will also be on hand, demonstrating her work painting murals with children in disadvantaged neighborhoods in Mexico.
