In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, a Latino art exhibit titled “From the Heart of Latino Art” is being held at Googleworks Center for the Arts in Reading, PA.
Over 70 works of art created by Hispanic artists from Berks County will be on display now through the end of September.
In an article on WFMZ.com, photographer Lizette Mendez explained that a medical missionary trip to Honduras served as the inspiration for her photography. “Trying to allow the person who sees my photos to see what I saw at that moment. To be able to capture it in a way where they can walk away from that photo and say wow that was pretty deep,” says Mendez.
The exhibit is sponsored by the African-American Coalition of Reading (A.C.O.R.). Latin American countries stretching through South America are represented.
