Latino Museum of History, Art and Culture Coupons, Savings and Museum Description for 2019
The Latino Museum of History, Art and Culture is the first museum in the United States dedicated to presenting the contributions of Latino culture. It sponsors several exhibitions each year and actively acquires artwork and publications related to its mission. Recent acquisitions include six drawings produced by Chicana artist Judithe Hernandez between 1974 and 1982, two prints by Mexican artist Felipe Ehrenberg, and a painting by Paul Sierra. The museum’s archival collection is designed to constitute a tremendous resource for Latino history as recorded in print and to document Latino views on politics, social issues, and other topics of interest. At present, the archival holdings primarily consist of Latino magazines published in the greater Los Angeles area and across the United States. Many of these publications date back to the 1970s, with some dating to the 1930s. The archival collection will expand by between four hundred and one thousand volumes annually. Issues of Con Safos, a Chicano art magazine published in the 1960s and 1970s, were recently added to the collection, as was the Kirk Whisler National Association of Hispanic Publications (NAHP) Collection, which comprises eighteen hundred magazines and other publications produced between 1930 and the late 1980s.
