Comida y tradiciones Art Exhibit
Food and traditions (comida y tradiciones) are important cultural components in understanding a community and its larger contribution to the national identity. The artists and their art highlighted in this virtual exhibit represent the backgrounds and life experiences shared by many Hispanics across the U.S. These important elements of U.S. Hispanic cultural identity also mirror the diversity and symmetry that exists within the country. When incorporated in art these themes have been found useful with building connections across cultures.
In this virtual tour Comida y tradiciones the Hispanic Research Center has curated artworks within its collection to expound on the themes "food and tradition" in homage of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
You are invited to engage in the virtual tour by clicking on each image or title.
It is important to also point out that the Bilingual Press, a unit that is an integral part of the HRC, also has artbooks available for purchase for some of the pieces that are featured in the Comida y tradiciones exhibit. Links to the available books are:
We at the HRC hope that you enjoy this initial virtual tour. Please stay tuned to the HRC web site for additional virtual HRC art exhibits that are planned for the future!
