“YLA” is the museum’s annual show of emerging artists. Now in its 21st year, it’s focusing this time on Hispanic artists who grew up in the millennial generation and were raised in dominantly Latino locales.

The artists have altered their way of representing traditional Hispanic works, producing art that reflects an inner dialogue while still connecting with their respective communities.
