Xico is issuing a call to artists open to Latina artists, professional and emerging based in Arizona
Xico is hosting an art exhibition as a tribute to Latina artists during Hispanic Heritage Month, as female artists are often unrepresented. As a Latina, what influences have lead to the creation of your art? How does your art represent and express your self-identity? Please include a statement on how you see yourself and what you aim to embody as a Latina woman in a contemporary society. To submit work, please fill out submission form and refer to our submission guidelines HERE.
Become a part of the nurturing environment of cultural enlightenment and artistic encouragement by contributing to Xico.
