Imagenes de Latin America - A memorial exhibition of modern art

August 10, 2019 – September 15, 2019

Tues.-Sat. 2 – 8 p.m., Sun. 10 a.m.

The exhibit is the result of a collaboration between Kenosha Creative Space, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and the family of the late Kenosha native Pat Tully Baird and her late husband, Tom Baird.

The Bairds amassed a prolific collection of modern art while living in Mexico from the 1950s until the late-1980s. Selections from this collection will appear on display at the Kenosha Creative Space from Aug. 10 to Sept. 15, after which plans are being made for them to go on display in other cities of significance to the Baird family.

The images include rare prints of works by many of the best artists of the time. Most of these works are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museo Arte Moderno in Bogata, the Museo de Bellas Artes in Caracas, the Instituto Nacional de Belles Artes in Mexico City as well as other major museum throughout the world.

The exhibit aims to foster a greater appreciation of life and the art of Latin America. There will be events throughout six weeks for all ages on printmaking and the fine arts of the Americas. A self-guided audio tour will allow visitors to gather a greater knowledge of the individual pieces on display.
