Centro Cultural Aztlan presents the annual Vuelo de Mariposas Spring Market, an indoor/outdoor artisan market of fine crafts, paintings, jewelry, wearable art, designers, and unique vendors, all to create a fun place to shop and socialize during the On/Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour.

The Vuelo de Mariposas Spring Market gives our local artists a spacious venue in which to showcase their “spring line” and offer their newest trends and colors for the up-coming season.

Visitors will be able to stroll through the Deco Building Breezeway and Corridors to meet and greet the contributing artists and artisans of the 2016 Vuelo de Mariposas Spring Market that will open in conjunction with the annual Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour from February 17-18, 2018.

In addition to our Spring market, visitors will be able to view our current exhibit, “40th annual Segundo de Febrero Exhibit” commemorating the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, 1848.
Centro Cultural Aztlan has produced and presented the annual Segundo de Febrero exhibit since 1978 in an effort to preserve Mexican American history and culture. This exhibit commemorates the 170th anniversary of the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, the ending of the U.S. Mexican war, and the redistribution of a border creating a new bicultural citizenry with a new consciousness of Mexican American dual identity, history, culture and traditions. The inspiration for our artists comes from past and present events that result in a visual dialog of Chicano identity and a reflection of the sentiment toward border issues and current events.
