Día de los Muertos: "Desfile de Catrinas" Opening Reception
Talento Bilingüe de Houston [http://www.tbhcenter.org]
Inspired by Mexico's Centennial, Michoacán artist and longtime A.I.D.S. activist, Lourdes Lopez Moreno presents an original group of skeletons - a.k.a.“Calaveras”. Moreno’s hand built clay sculptures of catrinas and catrines, delight and revel in their Mexican identity.
For the reception, guests are invited to dress as high society “undead” socialites (1890 Mexico height of euro-fashion), enjoy viewing these sculptures sipping coffee or hot chocolate provided by Nescafé Clásico and artesan “Pan de muerto” from La Unica Bakery who will be specially creating a an edible bread sculpture.
A sensual performance will be given by Miss Y.E.T., a contemporary burlesque belly-dancer dressed as a “Catrina.” She has created a special movement piece in an original costume just for the evening. Community altars will also be on view.
Note: The exhibit runs through Nov. 12.
