Exhibit-Connect Workshop – Piñatas: Casitas (Little Houses)

November 12, 2017 | 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

In conjunction with our current exhibition, Tradecraft by Giovanni Valderas, GAC presents a piñata-making workshop hosted by local artist Cristal Aldrete. Learn about piñata’s traditional use in Latin American cultures and the way the form has been transformed by the artist for this exhibit to make a deeper statement. Then build your own colorful creation from cardboard and tissue paper.

The “casitas” piñata workshop was developed by Valderas, and is inspired by the brightly painted homes found in predominantly Latinx communities. This project aims at highlighting (through color & construction) cultures that are an integral part of the fabric of our community, and also to create awareness about displacement and housing issues that exist in many major cities.

Open to all ages.  Children under 10 should be accompanied by a parent.

Suggested donation: $10
