21st Anniversary of Nuestra Palabra: A Mixed-Media Celebration
This mixed-media celebration salutes the 21st anniversary of Nuestra Palabra: Latino Writers Having Their Say.
Music, guest speakers, and art from the MFAH collections spotlight Houston’s Latinx community. The evening features writers Dagoberto Gilb, Jasminne Méndez, Lupe Mendez, Roque Planas, and Leslie Contreras Schwartz. Also included are Tony Diaz, founder of Nuestra Palabra; Adrian Garcia, Harris County commissioner; and Mari Carmen Ramírez, the MFAH Wortham Curator of Latin American Art.
This event is part of Latino Art Now! and the Spring of Latino Art Conference (April 4–6) organized by the Inter-University Program for Latino Research at the University of Houston, with presentations at more than local 30 venues. The MFAH exhibition Between Play and Grief: Selections from the Latino American Collection also coincides with this citywide initiative.
