LAX IdeAL is the Latino Artists eXchange / Intercambio de artistas Latinos, a community of creative individuals coming together at Milagro since 2010 to build a network, strengthen careers and nurture future artists.
This year, LAX IdeAL presents their second Latino Art Exhibit & Performance Showcase, with the participation of artists of Latino heritage representing six different nations. Live performances of music, singing and dance on Thursday, September 3rd, will launch a two-month-long art exhibit of painting, photography, sculpture and much more, at the Portland’5 Antoinette Hatfield Hall, where artists have found support and a venue to show their work since 2006. Formerly known as the New Theatre Building, Antoinette Hatfield Hall is home to the Portland’5 Box Office, the ArtBar & Bistro, and the Newmark, Brunish and Winningstad Theatres.

September 3rd coincides with Portland’s First Thursday; to celebrate, Portland’5 will host a reception where the public can meet and mingle with the artists. An evening to enjoy the work of some of the best Latino arts in Portland, discover new talents, and travel to Latin America thought art!

The genesis of LAX began in July, 2010, when Milagro invited artistic leaders representing a variety of disciplines to meet and share their advice, networks, and leadership, planting the seed for a collaborative group. Monthly meetings, workshops and annual conferences hosted by Milagro over the last five years have strengthened Oregon’s vibrant artistic Latino community.

The Art Exhibit and Performance Showcase will be a unique celebration of the strength and beauty of the Latino artistic movement growing in the Pacific Northwest. This event is made possible with the support of Portland’5 Centers for the Arts, Milagro, Multnomah County Cultural Coalition, RACC/Work for Art and the Oregon Arts Commission.

Without a doubt LAX IdeAL Art Exhibit & Performance Showcase on Thursday, September 3rd will be one of Portland’s biggest Latino-focused art exhibits in recent years, adding to Portland’s extraordinary cultural scene an authentic reason to be proud
