2021 Latino Arts Fest:
A Colorful Celebration!
June 20 - 26, 2021
The 2021 Latino Arts Fest was a great success.
Over 700 people walked through the Latino Arts Fest Gallery and Sundance “Nuestras Vidas” screenings at CCPC, countless numbers attended the Park Silly Market kick off day, over 250 locals danced and enjoyed Sabor Tropical at the Monday night concert, and roughly 200 people viewed the Twilight Drive In films. We’d like to thank you event partners, all the artists who travelled from far and wide to attend the event, and the many people who came and showed their support.
Stay tuned for 2022 event info!

Artist Talk with Adrian Esparza at the Kimball Art Center
Installation artist Adrian Esparza discussed his 3D woven serape sculpture. Esparza uses textiles as a medium to display his Mexican American art, culture and heritage. He unravels serapes and then wraps the threads around studded frames to create incredible art that explores mid-century minimalism, landscapes and our relationship with found objects. His unraveling and re-spinning of the serape in different forms represents our dependence on the past and suggests the new possibilities of the future.
