Forthcoming Exhibitions - Museum of Latin American Art

La Presencia:
The Presence of Latin American Art in California Collections
June 9-August 25, 2007

MoLAA is proud to celebrate, with the exhibition, La Presencia: The Presence of Latin American Art in California Collections, our Ten Year Anniversary and Grand Opening of the museum’s final expansion designed by Mexican architect, Manuel Rosen. The exhibition will present significant works of Latin American art represented in public and private art collections throughout California.

Over the last ten-years many private collectors and public collections have assisted MoLAA to either grow the permanent collection or present temporary exhibitions. MoLAA is pleased to acknowledge California’s growing interest in the field of Latin American art, and to highlight the current trends of art embraced in the collections of California’s important museums, galleries, and collectors. Art selections include painting, printmaking, sculpture and photography from 1950 to the present within the artistic range of Surrealism to Conceptualism.
