    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! The event will also feature live music and a traditional community Fandango with El Tallercito de Son honoring La Virgen de Guadalupe.

     

    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.
