he Acuña Arts Collective partnered with the City of Oxnard to turn two locations into temporary gallery spaces in downtown Oxnard. The community celebrated the exhibit Latino Visions in Oxnard 2017 with a festive opening reception on Friday, Sept. 15, that took place at the former Social Security Building at 424 South B Street, a space currently dubbed DNTN Gallery at 519 South C Street, and Plaza Park. Curated by Acuña founders Armando Vazquez and Deborah DeVries, the show features over 200 paintings, sculptures and photographs from such renowned artists as Frank Martinez, David Flury and Frank Romero as well as local and emerging talent. The exhibit is presented in celebration of both Latino Heritage Month and the Getty Center’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA exploration of Latino art, and will be on display until Oct. 30.
