Today, the living masters of Latin American art are recognized collectively for their impressive body of work. Bolivian born, Graciela Rodo Boulanger has clearly left her mark within this group of artists. Her works have been included in exhibitions at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Unesco, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art of Latin America, Washington, D.C.; the United Nations, New York; the Living Masters of Latin America, Oklahoma Arts Center; Museo Nacional de Arte, La Paz, to name a few. Rodo Boulanger's work evolved from her inspired Bolivian roots, her formal training beginning in Bolivia and Argentina and continuing in Vienna and Paris, and the inner forces that are at play within the framework of the creative mind. "I continue to learn every day, to go forward to discover. I keep this ability of being astonished as I was in my childhood," said Boulanger.
