In commemoration of International Women’s Day the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts is excited to have our 28th Solo Mujeres exhibition. The exhibit originally organized to address the need for a venue Latina artists in the Bay Area could express the achievements made in a male dominated art scene. It has since continued to support the advancement of women artists promoting the Latina voice within the arts. MCCLA’s Gallery Department is seeking curatorial proposals for this upcoming Solo Mujeres show, and welcome any scope of proposals.
Solo Mujeres has drawn artists throughout California and beyond providing a space where emerging and mid-career artists receive exposure in the artistic market; both vital elements in the art world. Past shows have displayed traditional work as well as contemporary media such as installation and video.
