The bilingual exhibition Arte Extraordinario: Recent Acquisition offers an opportunity to investigate the history of Latinx art and artists (that is, men and women whose heritage stems from Spanish-speaking cultures of the Americas). While these artists were often marginalized in traditional histories of art, this exhibition demonstrates how integral they have been to the rich artistic fabric of the United States.
