Creator Note

This collection is part of an exhibit of the same title sponsored by the Austin History Center and displayed at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders, Mexic-Arte Museum, Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection and Terrazas Branch Library in 2011. The Voces de Latinas Exhibition showcased the lives of notable Latinx women throughout Austin’s past and present through a photography exhibit and community-based programming. While Latinx women have a significant presence and legacy in Austin, that legacy has often been overlooked.

Political activists, community organizers, artists and other cultural leaders such as Emma Barrientos, Olga Campos, the Camacho family, Myrna Cabello, Beatriz de la Garza, Gloria Mata Pennington, Amalia Rodriguez-Mendoza, and many others were featured in the exhibit. These remarkable individuals have a range of professions and backgrounds that have contributed to the rich fabric of Austin history.


Scope and Contents

The Voces de Latinas collection showcases the work to produce an exhibition with community partners. The collection consists of biographical information, photographs, newspaper clippings, video, and other documentation donated by family members and friends. The 102 Latinx women portrayed in the exhibit were nominated by the community at large and are representative of all walks of life from the late 1870s to the present.


Arrangement

This collection created by the Austin History Center is arranged into two series. The first series "Voces de Latinas: Exhibit Research" consists of exhibition research materials donated by community members such as family photographs and other biographical materials. The "Exhibition Materials" series is comprised of assorted exhibition materials, photographs of the exhibit installation and opening, and video recordings of panel discussion programs at the Mexic-Arte Museum and Ruiz Branch Library.
Collection is arranged into 2 series:
I. Voces de Latinas: Exhibit Research
II. Exhibition Materials
