Everyone connects to artwork in their own unique way. A painting can inspire a song or conjure a memory. A sculpture could become a dance. A sketch could become poetry. These connections shape the way we look at art, ourselves, and the world in new and creative ways. Conexiónes invites Latinx collaborators from across Santa Cruz County to be community curators, selecting artworks from the Museum of Latin American Art’s collection to share personal stories of connection.

The Museum of Latin American Art is the nation’s leading museum of modern and contemporary Latin American art and culture. Founded in 1966 and based in Long Beach, California the MOLAA serves the greater Los Angeles area, and the world, with over 1600 works of art in their permanent collection.

For Conexiónes we have developed a community-sourced exhibition format that invites individuals to have in-person access to explore the Museum of Latin American Art’s collection of world-class artwork related to their heritage and culture, and to share personal stories and reflections about the works’ significance directly with MAH visitors.

In this exhibition, visitors will experience selected artworks from the Museum of Latin American Art’s collection through the stories, songs, dances, and words of Latinx individuals and communities here in Santa Cruz County. From artists and activists to community organizers, these local collaborators will select areas of interest that will be used to generate a list of available works from the MOLAA’s vast collection.
