The Tweed Museum of Art at UMD opened a new exhibit of prints this week Un-Typing Casta, an exploration of Latinx (Latina/Latino) identity.  Minneapolis artist, curator, and activist Maria Cristina Tavera brings this show to Duluth in collaboration with UMD Assistant Professor of Art History Dr. Jamie Ratliff. Listen to Radio Gallery for our conversation with Tavera about the uncovering, understanding and deconstructing of stereotypes and racism of Mexican-American culture. 

The Exhibition opened on November 8 and is on display through January 29, 2017.  Meet the artist at the opening reception Thursday November 17, 6-8pm at the Tweed.
