Building W-16 McGuireWoods Gallery, Workhouse Arts Center

workhouse arts centerThe Suenos Americanos exhibition at the Workhouse Arts Center is a nationally juried exhibition comprised of works created by visual artists working in a variety of mediums and styles that celebrate Latin America. Latin American art is comprised of the artistic expressions of South America, Central America, the Caribbean, and Mexico, and of Latin Americans living in other regions. One common cultural occurrence among Latinos is migration to the United States, often in search of the “American dream.” Suenos Americanos explores the dualities of the Latin American experience and how they uniquely inform the artistic voice of each artist represented.
