Centro Cultural Aztlan is honored to present the 23rd annual Celebración a la Virgen de Guadalupe Exhibit. 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. La Virgen de Guadalupe has moved beyond a religious icon; she has been embraced by Latinos/as/xs around the world and she belongs to the people. This exhibition is the oldest and most reverend featuring La Virgen de Guadalupe as the main theme. The exhibition includes Virgen de Guadalupe inspired acrylic, pastel, oil & watercolor paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and contemporary folk art.
