AIGA SB invites you to kick off the fall season with us at Casa Dolores for a social exhibition celebrating ¡Lotería!, Mexico’s game of chance and poetry. Admission includes food and beverages.
UPDATE: Check out photos from this event on the AIGA SB Facebook page!
The cards of lotería present collective memories, archetypal figures and objects central to daily life. True to its changing nature, lotería drawings continue to respond to the moment: from heroes in Mexican history, ecclesiastical figures and political satire, to current iterations via Hello Kitty, tattoo art, performance, and skateboards.
Casa Dolores, Center for the Study of the Popular Arts of Mexico, is devoted to the collection, preservation, study, and exhibition of an extensive variety of objects of the popular arts of Mexico. The center's mission is to expand the passion of Mexican Arts and Crafts with the community and visitors by stimulating the appreciation of the Mexican culture through educational programs, demonstrations, and free access to exhibits and the center's library.
