Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

As I am looking for artist to put in this power point presentation for International Women's Day celebration at the artist market downtown, I found it difficult. Aside from Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keeffe, what other women artist are commonly known? Google "women artists" and you get a short list of primarily old 18th and 19th century artist, Google "Latina artists" and get and even shorter list. Overall I got my 20 women artist to be displayed, a little more than half are Latina, and very little of them are young and contemporary.

For this weekend heres what I hope happens; I hope young women are exposed to artist like them and realize they too can be a famous artist if they really want to be. I hope this inspires young women to look for more artist and see that they can make a difference and add their name to the list, although it is short, they can grow up to represent a greater people. I hope that someday when they have an internship with Latinitas and do what I did, they don't have a difficult time looking for artist and have a wide variety of Latinas to look up to.
