“The Lizard and the Sun” Family Workshop

April 17, 2014

Branigan Cultural Center LogoIn conjunction with the exhibit La Sabiduría Ancestral / Ancestral Wisdom by local artist Corina Gabaldón, the Branigan Cultural Center presents a family workshop based on the Aztec story of The Lizard and the Sun / La Lagartija y el Sol, as retold by Alma Flor Ada. The story will be read in English and Spanish, followed by an art project.

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. Join us for a workshop exploring some of the characters in this art. We will learn about the roles played by different animals, gods, and traditions and create some art of our own, inspired by these ancient tales.

The workshop will take place on Saturday, May 10, at noon at Branigan Cultural Center and will include a visit to the exhibit. This 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.
