Hyphenated Americans Featuring the Artists and Friends of LUNA

Digital image of Art piece "Hija de Both" by Whitney Salgado

This powerful exhibit, curated by LUNA co-founder Katie Avila Loughmiller, composed of artists and friends of LUNA (Latinas Unidas en las Artes), explores what it means to be Latinx in the United States. Each piece is a personal representation of identity and culture through the eyes of the artist, demonstrating that there is no one-size fits all description for the Latinx population. The exhibit faces the struggle and balance between finding camaraderie and community in the similarities between different Latinx cultures, and the fight against unique identities within the Latinx culture that are being erased.

About LUNA Collective:
Latinas Unidas eN las Artes (LUNA) began after an honest conversation between co-founders Katie Avila Loughmiller and Gabriela Riveros. Passionate about increasing Latinx representation in Milwaukee art organizations, they decided to carve out space in this city’s art scene. Together they began to build a group of artists that has now become a collective with over 30 members. Since 2017, LUNA has curated a multitude of exhibitions, community events, and elevated the platform for Latinx artists in our community. Most recently LUNA, has been selected into this years Pop-UP MKE program.
