Folk tale literature throughout the world encompasses both magic and symbolism, comprising stories of saints, gods, myths, and legends. These repeated and recorded stories transcend various national and cultural boundaries. This remarkable exhibition features sixty-three original works of art from bilingual Latino folk tales published in children’s picture books. Eleven talented, award-winning artists focus their lively imaginations, distinctive styles, and colorful palettes to bring the stories alive. The illustrations enhance stories collected from many Spanish-speaking regions including Mexico, New Mexico, Puerto Rico, Central and South America.
