The Inter-American Commission of Women (CIM), the Museum of Art of the Americas of the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Permanent Mission of Colombia to the hemispheric organization today inaugurated the exhibit, “Mujeres en su Tinta,” in the framework of the celebrations of the Inter-American Year of Women.

The exhibit is a collection of cartoons created by five Colombian women—Consuelo Lago, Elena María Ospina, Adriana Mosquera, Martha Montoya and Martha Elena Hoyos—and curated by Guiomar Cuesta.

During the inauguration, the Permanent Representative of Colombia to the OAS, Ambassador Luis Alfonso Hoyos, said this graphic humor “gives us the unedited history of the daily life of a country, written by these Colombian cartoonists.”

For her part, the CIM Executive Secretary, Carmen Moreno, said that “cartoons are an essential cultural element, not only in Latin America but around the world.”

The exhibit is open to the public until October 29 in the Marcus Garvey Gallery inside the OAS Main Building in Washington, DC.
