Celebrando un Tesoro Cultural: Rita Flores de Wallace

Conocí a Rita Flores de Wallace a pricipios de la década de los años 1990 en el Museo de las Américas, durante una visita, guiada por ella, de una exhibición relacionada a la celebración del Dia de los Muertos. Me impresionó mucho su conocimiento de esta tan importante tradición Mexicana, pero también su forma tan cálida y accessible con la que compartió la exhibición con nuestro grupo. Casi inmediatamente después de que concluyó su tour, la invite a que formara parte del –en ese entonces- pequeño grupo de guías de los programas en español del Denver Art Museum. More

Join Us as CelebrARTE Celebrates One Year of Fun for Families

Planning this September’s CelebrARTE program, I realized, this will be the first anniversary of the program’s launch! ¡Increíble! Though I have been at the DAM working as Latino cultural programs coordinator for a bit longer, I was able to sit back and take note of the progress that happened in only one year. Of course, all of these achievements are very much a team effort, built upon a solid base that was established over decades. More

CelebrARTE, a Fiesta Every Month

This past Sunday was my son’s third birthday (¡no lo creo!) and I was incredibly busy planning the party. First, I had to help my son decide what the theme would be (superheroes). Then, I had to think of the party activities we would have in addition to the traditional piñata. (The kids made their very own superhero mask, and my husband helped them launch rockets.) I had to get the invitation out and make sure that I knew who was coming so we had the right amount of food and supplies. More

Inspired by la Naturaleza for the March CelebrARTE

Despite intermittent snow showers, day by day, the sun is getting warmer, and light is lasting for longer. In my bones I can always feel springtime approaching. It makes me feel energetic, nostalgic, and creative. It makes me want to hike, plant gardens, soak up sun, and remember the days that I sat in the grass just watching the clouds and plants. I was raised to be very attuned to and respectful of the natural world around me. More
