As our community grows with new residents, we all grow with richer cultural understanding and experiences. In tonight’s art + issues, Sasha Hasanbegovic, a founder of Coming to America: The Story of Us” will use a work of art in Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art to lead a dialogue on ways we can grow as a welcoming community. Like all art + issues programs this hour long event is free to all in the community.

Alvarez, Judah Best, The James F. Dicke Family Endowment, Sheila Duignan and Mike Wilkins, Tania and Tom Evans, Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino, The Michael A. and the Honorable Marilyn Logsdon Mennello Endowment, Henry R. Muñoz III, Wells Fargo and Zions Bank. Additional significant support was provided by The Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center.
