(L-R) Chris Ortiz, Catalina Beltrán and Robert Con Davis-Undiano will be featured speakers at the Celebration of Latino Culture on Oct. 20.

“As a Latino, I fell it is important to have an opportunity to celebrate my culture. It is also important to have an opportunity to tell ‘our’ story,” said Narciso Argüelles, Oklahoma Latino Cultural Center director and co-founder. “As an artist I love to make art related to my heritage and culture.”

From October 20 through November 2, the “Contemporary” gallery will host the following exhibits: Day of the Dead / Día de Los Muertos, from an open call to Latinx artists in the region; a photography exhibition by Chris Ortiz: Portraits of Latinx Identity / Retratos de la identidad latina, which shows the wide range of people who identify as Latinx; and an exhibition of prints by Self-Help Graphics, an LA-based community art center.
