De Colores Art Show
The 20th De Colores Art Show, a celebration of Latino culture, heritage and iconography, will premiere at the Santa Paula Art Museum on Saturday, October 26, 2013 with an opening reception to follow on Sunday, October 27 from 4 to 6 p.m.
The De Colores Art Show was established in 1995 by Santa Paula artist and activist Xavier Montes. After 18 successful shows, Montes resigned as curator, but not before appointing highly esteemed local artist Andrea Vargas-Mendoza as his successor.
De Colores illustrates the long history and many layers of Latino culture, including traditional and contemporary iconography, environments filled with vibrant color, a search for identity and most importantly, family.
