The first Latem School, the so called mystic symbolists, was formed by Albert Servaes, George Minne, Gustave van de Woestijne, Valerius De Saedeleer en Albijn Van den Abeele. The second school was formed in 1905 around the expressionists Constant Permeke, Jos Verdegem, Gust De Smet, Leon De Smet en Frits Van den Berghe. Later a third and fourth Latem groups of artists followed.
- In this village on the banks of the river Leie here and there traces can be found of its artistic past. In the ‘artiestenzolder’ (artists attic) of the town hall there are sometimes expositions. Sometimes a sculpture route is set out. The grave of George Minne can be found near the St. Martinus church. There are also two small museums:

- PARCUM offers temporary thematic exhibitions at the crossroads of religion, art and culture, often based around never shown before heritage from churches, abbeys and monasteries. Attention is paid in particular to the significance of these themes and this heritage in today's multi-religious and superdiverse society. As a museum for dialogue, PARCUM deliberately focuses on the interaction between contemporary (global) themes and religious heritage, between believers and non-believers, between different denominations and philosophies, between young people and the elderly, ... With this approach, PARCUM desires to stimulate engagement in visitors of various philosophical and cultural backgrounds. The museum positions itself as an open meeting place, a place for critical and creative thinking, for wonderment and development, for reflection and dialogue. PARCUM addresses issues of identity and creates new forms and contents to alleviate social tensions, for instance, by focusing on questions about interreligiousness and interculturalism, citizenship and personal development. https://www.parcum.be/en/about-parcum
