Latinx Heritage Month

During Latinx Heritage Month (LHM), the university community acknowledges this nationally recognized month. Although LHM is nationally celebrated in September, Northwestern's celebration commences later in the year due to our academic calendar, which starts in late September. Our LHM celebratory events begin in October and continue into early November with a variety of programming including cultural shows, social gatherings, and educational speakers.

POP America Pop In: Opening Celebration

Join the Block Museum for an all-ages, open house to celebrate the opening of Pop América, 1965–1975, an exhibition that brings together artists from North, Central, and South America, and the Caribbean to reframe our understanding of Pop Art. Pop América is the first exhibition to unify Latin American and Latinx expressions of Pop and explore how its bold, colorful imagery and political potential was embraced by artists working across the hemisphere.
