    Invisible No More: Disparities in Latino Representation & Inclusion in Nation’s Preeminent Art & Cultural Institution, Smithsonian Institution

    LPPI launches the first ever analysis to evaluate the Smithsonian Institution’s progress in implementing the ten recommendations from its 1994 report on the significant underrepresentation of Latinos in the Smithsonian workforce, programming, and collections. This project, led by LPPI experts Dr. Matt Barreto, Sonja Diaz, Dr. Juan Herrera and Dr. Chon Noriega of the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, will assess how the nation’s preeminent art and cultural institution reflects and represents Latinos as part of U.S. cultural heritage.
