SOLA was created as an ancillary program of the 5th Biennial Latino Art Now! Conference, a co-production of the Inter-University Program for Latino Research (IUPLR) and the Smithsonian Latino Center, which will convene in Chicago for the first time on April 7th. Register now!

If you’re holding an event in Chicago between the months of March and June in 2016 that belongs in the Spring of Latino Art, please contact Cristina Correa at
