Smithsonian National Museum of the American Latino
Google Arts & Culture Online Exhibition
September 15, 2022
"Mapping the U.S. Latino Experience" (MUSLE) is
an interactive media element only accessible in The Molina Family Latino
Gallery. It contains 16 national data
stories ranging from citizenship to education, and more. The data was used
to curate two virtual exhibitions on
Latino voters and Latino identity on the
Google Arts & Culture platform.
The ‘Latino Voters’ online exhibition seeks to educate younger generations and newly naturalized citizens about the process of voting in the United States, and entice Latinos to participate as agents of change in their community through contextualizing the significance of the Latino vote.
The second online exhibition—’Latino Diversity’—explores the historical and contemporary formations of Latino identity as well as the change in demographics in the United States.
