Ladies First: The Art of Carlos Luna

Ladies First: The Art of Carlos Luna

Edward E. and Jane B. Ford Gallery
Open February 5, 2022 through April 24, 2022

One of the foremost contemporary Cuban American artists, Carlos Luna is part of a generation of Latin American artists who embrace their strong heritage and traditions while reinventing themselves along the way. Luna tells stories and narrates fables through detailed and richly painted canvases, mixed media works on paper, lavish tapestries, sculptures and installations.


This first major exhibition of Luna's work in many years is an homage to women and femininity. It is a tribute to the creative power and strength of the women in his own life as well as on the larger world stage.
