Pasos de Arte 2019
August 9 - September 14, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, August 9 | 6-8 pm
As a kickoff to Festival Latino 2019, CAPA and the Cultural Arts Center, with additional support from the Columbus Museum of Art and Our Lady of Guadalupe Center at Catholic Social Services, have partnered to present Pasos de Arte 2019, a visual art exhibit that explores the richness of the Latino culture through the work of Ohio-based Latino artists. Pasos de Arte will run August 9-September 14 in the Cultural Arts Center’s Main Gallery.
The public is also invited to get a “first look” at the Pasos de Arte opening reception on Friday, August 9, from 6-8 pm. Held the eve prior to the start of Festival Latino 2019 (August 10, & 11, Genoa Park), the reception is free and will incorporate several of the elements that have made Festival Latino the largest Latin event in Ohio—music, food, fashion, and art. Columbus Symphony Principal Cellist Luis Biava will perform while attendees enjoy Latin cuisine from Festival Latino food vendors and explore the visual art and original fashion designs of Latino artists.
Anchored by mixed media artist Jeremy Rosario, Pasos de Arte 2019 features visual artists Adam Hernandez, Siani López, Emma Garcia Madrid, Ariel Peguero, Cecilia Román, Eliana Saari, Natalia Sánchez, Jesús Walle, Maria Alejandra Zanetta, and fashion designer Gerardo Encinas. The exhibit is curated by Rosa Rojas and Sandra López.
Jeremy Rosario, Cecilia Román, Natalia Sánchez, and Rosa Rojas are all previously featured visual artists at Festival Latino.
