Some Free Art! Check It Out!
The DePaul University Museum is displaying an exhibition of Latin American photography entitled Realism and Magic. The exhibition contains 20 images by Latin American photographers hailing from the likes of Guatemala, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, and the Caribbean. The photographs, the majority of which are black and white, feature portraits that contain very real images of emotions and landscapes that captivate the viewer. The portraits are emotional because some contain images of groups in a struggle against oppression, such as the Zapatistas, and the landscapes provide a poignant display of colonialism in Latin America. If you are interested, the exhibition is running from January 15 through May 4, 2009. It is completely free so don't be hesitant to come check it out! Yay for free art!
