Otra Vez (again)

PRESENTED ON FEB 25, 2016
IN EL PASO @ VOL 12

Otra Vez is speaker Wayne Hilton's 28 piece exhibit currently being featured in the Midland County Centennial Library until April 20, 2016.  The exhibit is comprised of three different segments featuring narratives that draw from various aspects of Latino culture, including the works of Mexican illustrator Jose Guadalupe Posada, the sport of Lucha Libre and Piñatas.  The works are mixed-media sculptures made from primarily recycled materials and found objects.  Drawing from my background in theatre and costume design, the works in this collection feature meticulously crafted detailing and are intended to reflect the symbiotic relationship between artisan and artist.
