Being feminine at the “Feminina” exhibitby Carolyn Classen on Mar. 02, 2013, under Arts, Life
New exhibit at Tucson Museum of Art, 140 N. Main Ave. in downtown: “Feminina: Images of the Feminine from Latin America”
This exhibition focuses on representations of the feminine, both sacred and profane, from throughout Latin America and over the course of several centuries. Including two and three dimensional artworks from the permanent collection, this exhibition spans Pre-Columbian through Contemporary Latin American art, highlighting the importance of representations of the feminine throughout Latin America and how these representations have changed over time.
I first learned about this exhibit from AZ Illustrated Arts Channel 6 (click here for the show which aired on Valentine’s Day 2013).
What does it mean to be feminine? The way we dress, style our hair or wear makeup, whether we are biological mothers or not? View this fascinating exhibit to find out.
Exhibit runs through June 16, 2013, and the TMA is free on the first Sundays of the month, 12 noon to 5 p.m. Regular adults admission is $10, Seniors over 65 $8, college students $5, all others free (children/students 18 and under, active military and veterans with I.D., members of TMA). What a deal for lovers of art.

And since March is Women’s “Herstory” Month, this exhibit is a fitting tribute to women and girls in Latin America.
