In May 2009, the Minnesota State Legislature asked the Minnesota Humanities Center and the Chicano Latino Affairs Council (CLAC) to collaboratively create new programs and events that celebrates and preserves the artistic, historical, and cultural heritages of the communities represented by the council.
With funding provided by the arts and cultural heritage fund from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008, CLAC and the Humanities Center seeks art submissions for:
