“The Latino List,” a photographic portrait exhibit opening Friday at the San Antonio Museum of Art, evinces a surprising profundity within its deceptive simplicity. The portraits are huge (58-by-44 inches) and ultra-high definition, with plain backgrounds, meant to draw viewers’ attention to the subjects, which include Sandra Cisneros, Eva Longoria, Pitbull, Henry Cisneros, Gloria Estefan and Justice Sonia Sotomayor, among others. Part of a multimedia initiative that also includes an HBO documentary and a book of photographs and monologues, the exhibit features 25 portraits of prominent Latin@s from the realms of literature, music, science, journalism, theater, business and government. The exhibit, and all other aspects of the initiative, is the work of celebrated portrait photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and is meant to highlight the struggles and successes of the featured individuals, while also contributing to a larger discussion on Latin@ identity in the contemporary United States. $13-$20 (free from 6-9pm Fri), 10am-9pm Fri, 10am-5pm Sat-Sun (on view through Dec. 31), San Antonio Museum of Art, 200 W. Jones Ave., (210) 978-8100, samuseum.org. — JC
