This unit traces artistic and cultural contributions to history and contemporary life in this country by peoples of Latin American heritage. From craft traditions in the Southwest to contemporary Cuban-American and Puerto Rican art, the collections of the National Museum of American Art provide the basis for instructional materials focusing on selected aspects of the Latino experience in the United States.

* A 28-minute video, subtitled in Spanish, presents contemporary Latino artists talking about themselves and their work. The video includes centuries-old traditions in the Southwest and the experience of recent migrations from the Caribbean and Central America.

* A 75-page bilingual study guide includes thematic units from the Spanish colonial period to the present, stressing regional differences. Activities encourage students to link Latino artworks with historical events and contemporary issues.

* Ten 8.5 x 11-in. color reproductions reinforce the Latino Art and Culture program.

* Fourteen color slides provide visual reference.
