"Latino Americans: 50 Years of History and Culture" is an eight-month series of public events, which aims to give a Fox Cities audience, particularly its Hispanic/Latino population, an opportunity to examine, discuss, and celebrate the historical and cultural impact of Latino Americans. The community will explore this subject through planned activities, including a concert of Hispanic/Latino music, two art exhibits, a Hispanic/Latino film festival, several speakers, interactive documentary screenings, and children's art and literature programming. Lawrence will leverage its own wealth of humanities experts and bring in both a nationally known Latin American scholar and art curator, a Latino artist/illustrator, and an international film director, to interact with public audiences.
