The Center for Latino Arts and Culture at Rutgers and the Library Host an Exhibition

The Center for Latino Arts and Culture at Rutgers, the State University and the New Brunswick Free Public Library are hosting an exhibition going on now through October 25, 2013. Produced by the Centro Académico y Cultural San Pablo in Oaxaca, Mexico,  the exhibition focuses on a historically significant 16th Century map. This map details, in pictographic form, the history of three generations of  indigenous Tacuate-Mixtec rulers in the region of the Santa María de Zacatepec, Oaxaca and explores their social and cultural legacy.

The exhibition will take place at two sites—the Rutgers Center for Latino Arts and Culture, located at 122 College Avenue, and the New Brunswick Free Public Library, located at 60 Livingston Avenue. The exhibition at the Center for Latino Arts and Culture focuses on the 16th Century narrative map while the exhibit at the library focuses on the modern story of Santa María de Zacatepec.

The Center for Latino Arts and Culture at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey is dedicated to building a creative space where the Rutgers community can discover and critically explore what it means to be Latino/a in the United States. For further information about the center, contact Carlos Fernandez, Ph.D., Director at 848.932.1263 or cafernan@echo.rutgers.edu.
