This cross-institutional team has come together to understand the role of arts and creative expression among Midwestern Latina/o communities. We invite you to explore this site, view the art, and interpret the unique qualities of Latina/o artistic expression in the Midwest. You will see how the arts attest to all kinds of transnational experiences—from migration, to bi-national identities, to the social networks that Latina/o artists are a part of—that ultimately illuminate how aesthetic cultural production has played a role in forming strong and vibrant communities that make the Midwest global.
