Hispanic Heritage Month Art Exhibition
Latinos: Driving Prosperity, Power, and Progress in America
About the Exhibition
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the San Bernardino County Museum will launch a new exhibit titled “Latinos: Driving Prosperity, Power, and Progress in America,” which will run from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, 2023. The theme recognizes the significant achievements of the Hispanic community in politics and industry. Organized and curated in partnership with the Inland Empire Latino Art Association, the exhibit features work by twenty-one local Inland Empire artists.
Museum Director David Myers said, “We are excited to host this exhibit of exceptional local artists during Hispanic Heritage Month, and we are excited to collaborate with the Inland Empire Latino Art Association once again. The museum is a space for community interaction with history, and what profound stories these artists share through their works!”
Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15 by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of Hispanic Americans.
The Hispanic Heritage observance began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100- 402.
