Origins: Heritage Dreams

About This Project

Origins: 8th Annual 

Hispanic Heritage Month Exhibition 

September 15th – October 15th, 2022 

The San Luis Library and collaborators would like to invite artists of all ages, levels, and techniques to the 8th Annual Origins Art Exhibition. This year's theme, Heritage Dreams focuses on recognizing how our roots influence our future.     

Our Mission: “Origins” is an annual non-juried event dedicated to promoting visual artists from both sides of the border. Our goal is to highlight the vitality and breadth of artistic practice in the region by providing artists a space to show their work and share it with the public. This exhibition builds bridges between artists and our community through an enjoyable viewing experience that fosters awareness and appreciation of the arts.
