Arte Extraordinario: A Short History of Latinx Art and Artists

Arte Extraordinario: A Short History of Latinx Art and Artists

Presented by Crocker Art Museum at Crocker Art Museum

The bilingual exhibition Arte Extraordinario: Recent Acquisition offers an opportunity to investigate the history of Latinx art and artists (that is, men and women whose heritage stems from Spanish-speaking cultures of the Americas). While these artists were often marginalized in traditional histories of art, this exhibition demonstrates how integral they have been to the rich artistic fabric of the United States.

Kevin Muller has taught at University of California, Berkeley; the San Francisco Art Institute; and Chabot College. He has also lectured on the collections at several museums, including the Crocker and the de Young. He received his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley, and his publications cover three centuries of American art.

No experience is required unless noted. The Museum provides student-quality supplies included in the fee unless indicated otherwise. Students are welcome to bring their personal supplies; however there is no discount for doing so. Oil paints are not allowed in studio classrooms.
