24th Annual Virgen de Guadalupe Exhibit
Centro Cultural Aztlan is honored to present the 24th annual Celebración a la Virgen de Guadalupe Exhibit. Visitors will explore the significance of the Latin American cultural icon, La Virgen de Guadalupe, through secular visual narratives showcasing a myriad of artistic representations of her by some of San Antonio’s most noted artists. La Virgen de Guadalupe has moved beyond a religious icon; she has been embraced by Latinos/as/xs around the world and she belongs to the people. This exhibition is the oldest and most reverend featuring La Virgen de Guadalupe as the main theme. The exhibition includes Virgen de Guadalupe inspired acrylic, pastel, oil & watercolor paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and contemporary folk art.
Join us at the opening reception and Art Market, Thursday, December 12, 2019 from 6-9pm.
For this festive occasion the opening reception will include an art market with unique artwork, crafts, and artesanía inspired by La Virgen, along with traditional treats like tamales, buñuelos, champurrado y mas!
Live music by Los Cantares de Mi Tierra and a traditional community Fandango with El Tallercito de Son honoring La Virgen de Guadalupe.
