Winter Celebrations, a trio of installations, along with live performances and interactive events centered on the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe, Lunar New Year and the African-American trail riders who help kick off the annual Livestock Show and Rodeo.

These distinctive traditions share more than a season -- they are all public, participatory, festive events involving parade-like processional activities, music and dance, and fancy garb or costume. What’s not to love!

Catholics the world over venerate the Virgin of Guadalupe, but She is especially revered by Mexicans. Her feast day on December 12 is celebrated in Houston in private homes, in neighborhood parishes and in a huge downtown procession that attracts scores of religious dance groups that come to honor Her. Programs and installation will explore the artful practices of devotion associated with this holiday.

This exhibit is free and open to the public during gallery hours (see below). 

Opening Reception

Join us for our opening reception December 3 at 6 PM to 8 PM. There will be drinks, food, music and devotional dances!
