About the artists / Sobre las artistas

Somos un grupo de mujeres Latinas that have created a great friendship. We came together and created this exhibit so the people can get to know us and our community. En este exhibit tenemos una pared con language sayings or dichos. We also have a table que contiene un community map. También tenemos un music playlist donde contiene nuestra música Latina. Y por último creamos un recording de un snack-off. ¡Esperamos que lo disfruten!

This exhibit amplifies Latina/x girls’ voices through co-creation of a multimodal exhibit that represents the varied cultures, languages, and histories of local Latinx communities. The exhibit makes intentional and explicit efforts to recognize Latina/x girls and afford representation of their histories, stories, languages, and cultures in humanizing and empowering ways. Latina/x girls worked together to imagine, design, and curate an exhibit that represents and honors their aspirations, hopes, and stories. In turn, visitors will gain opportunities to build cross-cultural understandings, relationships, and solidarity with Latina/x girls. This exhibit was created in partnership with Girls Go for It! (GGFI), a local nonprofit community organization that hosts professional leadership experiences for girls, and the Krannert Art Museum (KAM) to increase visibility of Latina/x girls’ experiences and promote equitable, authentic representation of Communities of Color in public spaces. This project was funded by a Call to Action to Address Racism & Social Injustice Research Program grant from UIUC's Office of the Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
