Friday, Apr 12, 2024, 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Meet acclaimed alebrijes carver Armando Jimenez and his son, the alebrijes painter Alejandro, who are visiting from Oaxaca, Mexico. They will be creating alebrijes (brightly painted Mexican folk art sculptures of both fantasy- and mythical creatures, made of wood and papier-mâché).  This will be a live demonstration, and the artists can answer questions about their beautiful traditional folk art as they work.
