We had a wonderful time at the art show on September 15. We had over forty participants attend the College’s Hispanic Heritage kickoff event. Marisol Galarza-Ruiz provided two presentations on the art in my home. We also had a Trio play Latino music and Steve Farrington invited Matthew Valverde, a tenor from the Eastman School of Music, who sang an aria in Spanish.
We also had wonderful Puerto Rican cuisine from “el Jibarito” restaurant and tropical juices available.
I downloaded photos that you can view at the link listed below. A special thanks to Anita Manuele who did a lot of background work for us. A wonderful thank you to the 4 students from the Spanish Club who volunteered to serve food.
