F.A.C. Milagros Exhibit

Greetings All,
Here's another great exhibit of the F.A.C. and it runs May 8th thru June 8th, 2013.  It's titled "Milagros" and the artist reception is Sunday, May 19, 2013.  My piece "Behold the Child" is a part of this exhibit at the Addison Center For The Arts, 213 N. Lombard Rd. Addison, IL 60101 Phone: 630-458-4500 and if you are in the area do stop by.

Milagros are small metal figures used to thank Christian saints for fulfilling requests in time of need.  The custom of creating Milagros accompanied the Spanish as they arrived in the Americas and continues to be a part of folk culture throughout rural areas of Spain as well as in Central and South American and parts of North America.  In Spanish, the word milagros literally means miracle or surprise.
