The community is invited to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by attending a Hispanic art exhibit on the 10th floor of the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Government Center. Student artists from Bernalillo County’s after-school programs will be honored for creating traditional Hispanic art featuring retablo, tin and papel picado art.
- papel picado—means punched paper
- retablos—are paintings that usually represent saints
- tin art, like lanterns and boxes, are made from tin.
The students’ artwork will be displayed on the 10th floor through the end of the year. The students participated in the county’s after-school art workshops at Rudolfo Anaya Elementary School and Raymond G. Sanchez and Los Vecinos Community Centers.
