This Cinco de Mayo, the Latino Arts Project will open its doors in Dallas’ Design District with the exceptionally curated exhibition, “Mexican Modern Sculpture: A Study of the Artists.” Curated by María Estela Duarte, one of the greatest authorities in Mexican modern art, the inaugural exhibition will feature nearly 100 sculptures and numismatics from nine transformational artists of the 20th century, representing five different regions in Mexico. With the support of the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura and the Secretaría de Cultura de México, the Latino Arts Project is the only venue in the United States to feature “Mexican Modern Sculpture: A Study of the Artists.” 

“Home to one of the largest Hispanic populations in the United States, Dallas is the perfect place for a modern-day museum that paves the way for next-generation art experiences,” said Jorge Baldor, Cuban-born entrepreneur and founder of the Latino Arts Project. “People will no longer have to travel south of the border to immerse themselves in authentic Latin American heritage.” Organized by the Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo in Mexico City, the exhibition will be on view from May 5 to Sept. 22. — Kurt Watkins
