Note: On Wednesday, May 3, at 5:30 p.m., curator Cheryl Hartup and UO graduate students Rucha Chandvankar, Brian Lane, and Victoria Lee, will discuss the exhibition.

EUGENE, OR (April 11, 2017) –  The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, located on the University of Oregon campus, presents the exhibition “Diálogos,” on view through October 8, 2017.  The exhibition features recent acquisitions of art from Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States.
