About The Art

CELEBRATING HISPANIC ARTISTS IN THE BUTLER COLLECTION 

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH VIRTUAL EXHIBITION ON BUTLERART.COM THROUGH OCTOBER 31, 2020

National Hispanic Heritage Month started with President Lyndon Johnson in 1968 and was expanded during the Ronald Regan Administration. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402. From September 15 – October 15 we recognize the contributions and the important presence of Hispanic and Latin Americans in the United States. Hispanic Americans make up more than 60 million of American population making it the largest minority group in the United States.  U.S. government celebrates the countless contributions of Hispanic Americans in culture and society. This virtual exhibition spotlights some Latin American artists in The Butler Collection. The works by Hispanic American artists permanently on display physically throughout the museum are also highlighted throughout the month of October. The influence of these artists on American art and artists worldwide is both evident and undeniable. Works that can be seen on permanent display throughout the museum are:

  • Veil (2000), Aerial Night Grass (2000), and Corona Discharge #3 (1981) by Chilean American artists Alejandro and Moira Siña (1945 -)
  • El Sol Asombra (1989) by Puerto Rican artist Rafeal Ferrer (1933 -)
