Attendees will create a unique work of art inspired by traditional Huichol iconography. The Huichols are an indigenous group of people who live in West Mexico. Broadly speaking, their art is known for its use of colorful symbols and designs that date back centuries. The Museum has many pieces of Huichol art in its collections—some of which will be serve as inspiration for the attendees. Cinco de Vino is Cheryl Smallwood-Roberts first event as Head of Curatorial Programs at the Museum of the Red River. Cheryl said, “It’s going to be fun to interpret these traditional designs into a different art form.”
