Based in the peasantry for the most part, Latin American women's art is profoundly tied to a complex fabric of cultural heritage. This glorious celebration of the unsung and virtually unseen women artists of Latin America presents a dazzling group of women who challenge common assumptions about the nature of artists and their art. Those profiled include painters, sculptors, photographers, textile artists, musicians, dancers, choreographers, and filmmakers. Photos.
