        Mishkin Gallery Exhibit Featuring Dean Romero's Collection

Dear Faculty and Staff,

I am excited to announce the opening of Self-Taught Art from Latin America and the Caribbean, a wonderful exhibition from the Aldemaro and Ana Romero Collection at the Mishkin Gallery.

Dr. Aldemaro Romero, dean of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and his wife Ana, an adjunct lecturer in the Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature at Weissman, have been collecting the works of Latin American self-taught artists since 1981. Their exhibition is a celebration of diversity and perseverance, featuring works from eight Latin American countries across a wide variety of mediums and styles. I hope you join me in supporting Al, Ana, and all the talented artists represented in their collection by viewing their work at the Mishkin Gallery between Thursday, April 20, and Friday, May 19.

This exhibition is being supported by the Schindler-Lizana Fund for Latin American Arts & Cultures at Baruch. The artwork on display highlights the simplicity, brilliance, and passion of self-taught artists from across Latin America, but can also be enjoyed outside of the cultural environment in which it was created. Exhibitions such as this one remind each of us at Baruch that when we challenge ourselves to explore our environment through artistic expression, we are exploring our cultural diversity. 

Please bring your classes to the Mishkin Gallery for a talk/tour of Self-Taught Art from Latin America and the Caribbean: The Aldemaro and Ana Romero Collection. To schedule a talk/tour contact Mishkin Gallery Director Sandra Kraskin, 646-660-6652 or
