The first museum we headed over to was the Museum of Latin American Art. This museum featured artwork solely from Latin American artists. There were a few distinct exhibitions displayed when we went. They were: Sculpture Garden, Tell me a Tall Story, LOLA ÁLVAREZ BRAVO: THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF AN ERA, and SOCIALES: DÉBORA ARANGO LLEGA HOY / DÉBORA ARANGO ARRIVES TODAY
The links I posted provide some more information, check it out!
This museum utilized its large campus to display those different collections. Arrango made artwork that actively communicated political statements. Every piece of her art consistently portrayed women who were partially clothed and revealing their femininity; some were even victims of rape, and others were prostitutes. Her main focus was on the nude woman. She was criticized for producing works of art that were taboo, and frowned upon. However, she persisted, despite the controversy she stirred.
Lola Álvarez Bravo is a Mexican photographer of the twentieth century. Her use of various photographic techniques attracted many people to see her work.
The collection, Tell Me a Tall Story, features many different artists who produce different forms of art that go along well with a certain story. As the story progressed, I was able to interact with the different works of art. Instead of pieces of art for viewing pleasure, these artworks evoked powerful messages, and forced me concentrate deeply on each piece of art. The last four images I uploaded show some of the story-line artwork. In order to get the full story, visit the museum today!
Finally, the sculpture garden displayed large sculptures constructed from a variety of materials. These materials may include, wood (the third image is made of wood), bronze, and metal, and some other materials.
