Hispanic or Latino? Neither!

Nearly four decades after the United States government mandated the use of the terms “Hispanic” or “Latino” to categorize Americans who trace their roots to Spanish-speaking countries, a new nationwide survey of Hispanic adults finds that these terms still haven’t been fully embraced by Hispanics themselves.
Very interesting new report on one of my pet peeves from The Pew Research Center... read it here.

Opportunity for Artists

There has been a Deadline Extension for Call for Entries for MPA's summer juried exhibition "Something and Nothing: Activating the Void"

This exhibition will bring together artists whose work deals with space, inclusion or absence. Many artists pay close attention to the “negative space” in their work, and often what is not included or that which is in-between is just as important as what is. For this exhibition, they are looking for works that explore this territory, either in a conceptual or formal way.

The juror will be J.W. Mahoney who is an artist, critic, and independent curator who serves as Washington’s Corresponding Editor for Art in America. He is an Affiliate Professor of Visual Arts at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, and his latest exhibition “Canceral” will open at Curator’s Office in Washington in May of this year.

Important dates:

April 11 Deadline for submissions

June 14 - July 28 Exhibition
