Francisco Loza Art Exhibition

Francisco Loza Art Exhibition

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, join us for an artist exhibition featuring Mexican artist, Francisco Loza. Francisco creates Arte de Estambre or pressed yarn art. The Arte de Estambre technique is associated with the Huichol people, an indigenous group that lives in the central mountainous region of Mexico. Loza learned the technique from Huichol artisans and continues to collaborate with Huichol artisan-shamans in Mexico and the United States.

In his pressed yarn works, Loza draws on both traditional and contemporary influences. Many of his pieces depict Latin American and Mexican cultural traditions and community scenes, while others draw on more abstract and experimental influences and imagery.
