Shining a light on the power and range of the stories of the people in these often marginalized communities.

Ecos: Resonances of South Carolina Latino Stories

Ecos (Echoes) is a collaborative multimedia art exhibition featuring the stories of Latino immigrants in the Lowcountry interpreted by 20 select Latino South Carolina visual artists. Visitors to the exhibition have the opportunity to listen to each audio story and read its transcription as they view the artwork inspired by it. From 2012 to 2014, The Citadel Oral History Program conducted interviews documenting the experiences of South Carolina’s Latino immigrants living in the Lowcountry for a program called Las Voces (The Voices). Ecos expands on Las Voces and its assertions of the basic humanity of Latino immigrants to shine light on the power and range of the stories of the people in these often marginalized communities.
 
The initiative has been made possible through the support of the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation and was coordinated in partnership with The Citadel Oral History Program and  Palmetto Luna Arts.

Learn more about the exhibition with our multimedia tour featuring audio recordings of each of the stories that inspired these works along with some artist interviews.
