Krannert to host Latin American art exhibit

October 1, 2012  

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Krannert School of Management will host an exhibit of Latin American art through Oct. 26.

"Indigenismo & Modernismo" is drawn from the Purdue Galleries' Latin American art collection.

The exhibit stems from a collaboration by the Patti and Rusty Rueff School of visual and Performing Arts art history program, the Purdue Galleries, and the Krannert School of Management.

 "They pulled together their resources and talents to mount a show that celebrates the arts and culture of Latin America," said Catherine Dossin, assistant professor of art history. "The outcome demonstrates the rich potential of partnerships across disciplines and across colleges."

The exhibit explores the complex relationship between indigenous peoples of Latin America and modern culture, a relationship that embodies the state of Latin American culture in the 20th century. 

It is being held as part of Latino Heritage Month and to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Latino Cultural Center.

 The exhibit, in Krannert Center, will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday (Oct. 4), 1-7 p.m. Friday (Oct. 5) and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 22. Admission is free.

The exhibit also will be available for viewing at other times by appointment. To make appointments, contact Dossin at
