‘Gilded, Carved, and Embossed’ at Benton

“Gilded, Carved, and Embossed: Latin American Art 1500 – 1800,” a new exhibition featuring art from the viceregal period, will be on view at the Benton Museum through Sunday, July 23.

The installation includes more than 20 works and “showcases how Indigenous artists in what is now Central and South America absorbed and transformed European subjects and art forms in the service of spreading Catholicism,” a news release read.

The exhibit was curated by Victoria Sancho Lobis, Sarah Rempel, and the museum’s director and associate professor of art history Herbert S. Rempel.

The Benton is at 120 W. Bonita Ave., Claremont, and is open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. with extended hours until 10 p.m. Thursday. For more details visit pomona.edu/benton or call (909) 621-8283.
