Branigan Cultural Center LogoLocal artist Corina Gabaldón will lead visitors through her exhibit La Sabiduría Ancestral / Ancestral Wisdom in a guided tour on Saturday, May 17 at 10am.

Influenced and inspired by the rich culture, mythology and fascinating art of her ancestors, Corina Gabaldón’s paintings are dedicated to promoting and preserving the ancestral wisdom of her Aztec/Mayan heritage. Corina believes art can be a pathway to peace and world healing, and that it is a sacred task. As she moves through the gallery, she will share her thoughts on honoring her heritage, creating art, and the importance of sharing traditional lifeways through artistic interpretation.

Gabaldón notes that “the sharing of these spiritual, traditional indigenous beliefs, knowledge and ways of life, will not only bring appreciation and availability to the world, but it will build pride and identity in the children of today’s generation who have inherited this wisdom since ancient times.” The artist will share the stories and history behind each painting in this intriguing show.

Join us for this one-time artist-lead tour of La Sabiduría Ancestral / Ancestral Wisdom. The program is free and open to the public.

The Branigan Cultural Center is located at 501 North Main Street. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. For more information, contact the Branigan Cultural Center at (575) 541-2154 or visit the Center’s website at las-cruces.org/museums.
