Hispanic Art Exhibits

BessRodriguesOldHavanaHemingwayHauntBeck Center for the Arts in collaboration with American Greetings, Esperanza, and the Hispanic Cultural Center will host joint exhibitions through October 6, 2013. Hispanic Heritage, Hispanic Art features five Hispanic artists, while Esperanza’s Young Artists showcases works created at American Greetings summer workshops. Both exhibitions are free and open to the public.

The vibrancy of Hispanic culture will be on display at the second annual Hispanic Heritage, Hispanic Art exhibit, which features the distinctive artworks of local Hispanic artists including Bess Rodriguez Richard, Augusto Bordelois, Hector Castellanos, Martinez Garcia, and Dr. Maria José Pujana. This exhibition provides gallery viewers with a glimpse into the artists’ lives and culture through their present work.

Beck Center is pleased to host the return of Esperanza’s Young Artists, an exhibition that has grown out of a series of summer workshops led by artists from American Greetings. Different artists guided the Esperanza youth-program students through a variety of artistic techniques including contour drawing, collage, and block printing. For many students, this was their first chance to meet a professional artist and to understand some of the creative opportunities that the work world offers. Esperanza, Inc., is a local non-profit that promotes Hispanic educational achievement.
