Lupita Carrasco
Opening reception and exhibit in the Green Room at the Loveland Museum
Lupita Carrasco was born an artist. At the age of four, she was already pouring out dreams and ideas onto paper. Lupita's vibrant Mexican culture and traditional Roman Catholic upbringing command a strong presence in her work. Her paintings are as rich in emotion as they are in color and detail.

José Guadalupe Posada
Opening reception and exhibit in the Foote Gallery at the Loveland Museum, presented by Angel Vigil
José Guadalupe Posada (Feb. 2, 1852 - Jan. 20, 1913) was a Mexican Political printmaker and engraver. His work has influenced many Latin American artists and cartoonists with its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaberas, and bones to make political and cultural critiques.
