Although they are different, the terms Hispanic and Latinx are sometimes used interchangeably. It is at times a personal annoyance but in the instance of many calling September 15 - October 15 Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month, it’s welcomed, because why not celebrate more of our contributions?

Last year we entered the month in the shadow of the deadliest attack on Latinos in modern history. This year the month began with the horrifying whistleblower complaint of forced hysterectomies and medical neglect in a detention center. Combine that with the disproportionate suffering of the Latinx community around COVID-19 and continued family separations, and it does not exactly seem like a time to celebrate. However, to give in is to give up, and that is not something we can afford right now.

Art has the ability to give hope, transform, and lead to action. In 2019, we had the pleasure of sharing Hispanic artists to follow on Instagram. This year we’re sharing some accounts that will take you on journeys through Latinx art and culture, adding some inspiration to your feed. Let’s be celebrated, not denigrated. You may see some work and imagery you are already familiar with and you will also discover new paths. And while you are scrolling, please remember the best way to honor the Latinx and Hispanic community is to vote on November 3!
