Art Booty

In the summer of 2004, it seemed impossible to escape the song "Culo"—ass—by Miami rapper Pitbull: "Mami, feel me, let me see you touch your toes...tiene tremendo CULO!" Using the term in a more symbolic way is a trio of Latina artists with an exhibition called Bésame mucho. Besa mi Culo., showing through March 21 at the El Centro College Fine Art Gallery, 801 Main St. The three-dimensional pieces by Candace Briseno, Rosemary Meza and Polly Perez explore stereotypes of Latinas as "feminine and romantic yet tough and abrasive." Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday. Call 214-860-2115.
Mondays-Fridays. Starts: Feb. 22. Continues through March 21
