Ecuador Unframed: the Art of Oswaldo Guayasamin

February- March, 2015 (dates to be announced)

As part of WKU Year of Country and sponsored by WKU Office of International Programs, the exhibit “Ecuador Unframed: the Art of Oswaldo Guayasamín,” will travel to the Kentucky Museum in February 2015. Guayasamín’s original mural, created in the 1940s as a commission of the Ecuadorean government, depicts Ecuador’s landscapes and people, as well as the country’s hardship, poverty, violence, and social injustice. The collection is divided and organized around three ethnic themes: Indians, mestizos, and blacks. The traveling mural assembles these themes through five movable panels designed to work as a puzzle.
