    It’s great that you got to visit the museum. I wish I could have gone, too. Latinos and Hispanics have always been underappreciated in the history of LA, so having a museum dedicated to displaying their art is a good way to acknowledge them. With so many Spanish-inspired architecture in Los Angeles and even here in Long Beach, art of their cultures should be acknowledged. You said that MOLAA is apparently the only museum in the US that displays modern Latin American art, and I was surprised to learn that it’s only 20 years old. Latin Americans and Chicanos have been here in Southern California since its beginning, but it’s only recently that they have a museum for their modern art. But at the same time, this isn’t surprising, given our tendency to erase Hispanics from our past. Better late than never, I guess?
