Curated by Virginia Fabbri Butera, PhD, and Will Suarez, MFA, this is one of two paired exhibits conceived as part of LatinX ConeXiones, a project of the nearly 30 cultural organizations in the Arts & Culture Collaborative, showcasing the arts and culture of Latinx artists in Morris County and other communities through more than 26 performances, fine art and craft exhibitions, music, dance, literature, poetry, theatre, food, history, installations and other creative disciplines from August through November 2019.

The events will take place in venues across Morris County, publicized via members’ websites, newsletters and social media as well as via The Collaborative’s calendar of events, online at https://artsandculturecollaborative.org, www.facebook.com/latinxconexiones and https://www.instagram.com/latinxconexiones/.

Expresiones Latinx I  focuses on the themes of Nature/Environment; Dreams; Barriers; Love; Dance; Music; Sports; and The Streets. It complements related themes (such as Home, Family, Memories, Places, Religion, etc.)  highlighted in Expresiones Latinx II, also curated by Butera and Suarez and opening on September 18, 2019  at the Maloney Art Gallery at the College of Saint Elizabeth in Convent Station.
