Art Gallery

The Latin American and Caribbean Studies center’s Art Gallery is located in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Building, Third Floor, Room N320. It has become a Long Island showcase for Latin American and Latino arts. Each semester we introduce local artists and their work to the Stony Brook community. Some of our previous exhibits included the prize-winning show “Unseen America,” documentary photography made by Latino day-workers.
