Two Lebanon Valley College professors are collaborating on an art exhibit that tells the story of Latinos and their roots in Central Pennsylvania. The exhibit,
Dutchirican: A Latino History of Central Pennsylvania
, features the work of Dr. John Hinshaw, professor of history, and Dr. Ivette Guzmán-Zavala, associate professor of Spanish and whose original training was in art. The first exhibition on Latino migration to Central Pennsylvania, Dutchirican will be on display at the Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery at LVC from June 29—August 13.
Dutchirican combines photography and public history. Historic photographs are displayed from Frank Espada’s work on the Puerto Rican diaspora in the 1970s, as well as contemporary photographs from Rolfe Ross, Lackawanna County, and Dr. Guzmán-Zavala, from Lebanon County. The public history traces the contributions of Spanish-speakers to Pennsylvania from the American Revolution and the Civil War to the present.
