Poem accepted for ARTE LATINO NOW 2017!

Queens University of Charlotte, NC, has accepted my poem “Calle del Cristo, Old San Juan” for their ARTE LATINO NOW 2017 exhibition of Latino artists.  The poem will be read at the opening reception and the exhibit will run for a month:

January  17, 2017  – February  17, 2017  10:00 AM  – 8:00 PM

Max L. Jackson Gallery, Watkins Building, Queens University of Charlotte

From their site:

“Art Latino Now exhibits the works of Latino artists selected by national competition. The show highlights the diverse cultural and artistic contributions of Latinos in the United States. The exhibit is sponsored by the Center for Latino Studies at Queens, Friends of Art at Queens and the Departments of Art and World Languages in partnership with artist Edwin Gil and ArtSí.”

The Center for Latino Studies also publishes a journal, Label Me Latina/o, edited by Dr. Michele Shaul, Director of the Center, and co-Director Kathryn Quinn-Sanchez, which is an online scholarly journal indexed by the MLA International Bibliography.  My poem, “Poem for My Father” was previously published there in 2014.  “Label Me Latina/o is an online, refereed international e-journal that focuses on Latino Literary Production in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.”
