Next week our popular Jane's Home events begin with a Meet the Artist reception with contemporary artist Jorge Rojas!
We have a a few changes this year. We will have the dinners every other month, and on the off months Meet the Artist receptions that will be more casual, with just an aqua fresca, chips and salsa. For these, we suggest a donation of just $6 to cover the cost of the house and refreshments. We have done this to allow students and others on a budget to learn from Mexican artists and artists inspired by Mexican art traditions.
The dinners will be fabulous, as always, and this year, we have Frida Bistro providing their amazing culinary sensations for two of our dinners!
Get ready for an exciting year with a special emphasis on contemporary Mexican art - and food!
BTW, check out our calendar below for our activities this busy year! The best way to keep up is our facebook page, Artes de Mexico en Utah.
Thank you to all of our supporters, including ZAP, the taxpayer of Salt Lake County!
