Mujeres, translated to “women” in English, is the first exhibition in Nebraska to focus on the shared existence of five contemporary artists: all women, all Latino, and all connected to the state. The artists selected are Claudia Alvarez, Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez, Linda Garcia-Perez, Reneé A. Ledesma, and Sandra Williams. While each artist hails from different backgrounds, different countries – Colombia, Mexico, the United States, and from different cultures within the Latino experience, their artwork finds common themes that swirl around history, family, religion and spirituality, as well as finding a sense of place in the American landscape.
Mujeres is sponsored by Younes Hospitality, Paul and Linda Younes
