Noon @ the 'Spoon Public Tours -

Our 20-minute Noon @ the 'Spoon tour is a fun way to explore a new exhibition during your lunch break. Offered the second Tuesday of the month. Free and open to the public.

This month we will be touring the exhibition Modern Roots: A Survey of Latin American Art from the Collection, on view through December 23, 2018.

In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15), the museum will showcase objects from its collection by modern and contemporary artists hailing from the diverse Latin American cultures of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Uruguay. The exhibition will focus on both figurative traditions and innovative explorations of abstraction, with surreal motifs and conceptual considerations rounding out the overview. Artists include those well known in the history of art, such as Roberto Matta-Echaurren, Alfredo Jaar, Ana Mendieta, Beatriz Milhazes, and Rufino Tamayo, as well as those recently emerging or re-discovered. The exhibition as a whole honors the myriad contributions of Latinx communities to the visual arts.
