Featuring diverse works by seventeen artists who are part of the group, Neo-Latino, this exhibition reveals how artists interpret and express the power that a specific location and/or the objects found there, have on their artistic ideas and practice. Curated by Dr. Virginia Fabbri Butera, the Director of the Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery at the College of St. Elizabeth in Morristown, N.J., the exhibition was first presented earlier in May at The Gallery Space in Rahway, N.J.
