New York Latin Art is in museums, galleries, art fairs, parks and on the street.
Thursday is NYC’s main art gallery opening night. It’s fun to walk around the Chelsea art district between 6-8pm. The art is great and so is the people watching. It’s a great date.
Thank you for sponsoring Latin art at New York Latin Culture Magazine!

About New York Latin Art
Like most human culture, art begins as an expression of faith to ease the journey through life and death. From there it grows into a hundred flowers. There is great art everywhere. In a way, being a New Yorker is an art form in and of itself.
If you look at American art (especially Latin American Art) the same way you look at European art, your own bias will blind you. They are different world views. The art world is beginning to recognize that one isn’t better than the other. European art is more European, American art is more American. Whether art is made from diamonds or garbage is irrelevant. In fact art made from garbage is probably more real. Diamonds are a sucker’s artifice.
New York art fairs and important gallery exhibitions cluster around Frieze Week in May and Armory Week in September. The May and November art auctions are more pillars of New York’s art world. After the November auctions, New York’s art world goes south to Art Basel Miami, America’s most important contemporary art fair.
In February of 2020, the Whitney Museum of American Art recast art history by stating that the biggest influence on the development of American art was not the European schools, it was the Mexican Muralists. Let that sink in. 🇲🇽
The cover image is the most famous Latin art in New York City that you’ll never see. It’s Diego Rivera’s “Man, Controller of the Universe” (1934), in the Palacio de Bellas Arts in Mexico City. That is Rivera’s recreation of his own “Man at the Crossroads” from 30 Rock in Rockefeller Center, which Nelson Rockefeller destroyed in 1933 because it includes a portrait of Lenin.
