The City of Gaithersburg welcomes the annual “Hispanic Heritage Celebration” art exhibit to the Activity Center at Bohrer Park through November 13, 2022. The exhibit is part of the City’s Hispanic Heritage Celebration.
Collage artist Roxana Rojas-Luzon returns as the special guest curator for this exhibition. She selected 39 pieces of art in a variety of two-dimensional mediums. “Hispanic artists want to offer the community a complete vision of what it means to be Hispanic,” said Rojas-Luzon. “Our works not only represent what we left in our countries of origin & our nostalgia, but also our daily joys & struggles — what we are living & learning here every day. They are a fusion of imagination, experiences & richly varied influences. Our Hispanic heritage is intrinsic in our imagery & colors — what we learned as children: love for our families, landscapes, faces & traditions. All this is rendered not only realistically but also figuratively, abstractly & even surreally.”
Artists featured in this exhibit include María Luisa Benavides, Tony Brun, David Camero, Felisa Federman, Magaly Garza, Elena Gaston Nicolas, Edward Johansen, Mita Lazarte, Silvia Martinez & Sandra Pérez-Ramos.
Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with educational & cultural presentations & activities. Residents are encouraged to learn about & celebrate Hispanic culture & participate in local events & programs taking place throughout the month, many coordinated by the City’s Multicultural Affairs Committee.
