Art By Mia Oct ~ Nov 2012 NewZletter

Que Pasa Creative Creaters!!!
So much going on and always on Divine Time! October is not over… so much to do, see and share. As we shift from one season to the next, it’s like shedding old skin and growing a new layer. It’s new growth, a new beginning, fresh start and a new day. The Fall is Mother Nature’s canvas of color and explosion. The changing colors of Autumn is inspiring, changing shapes and moods of sky and nature is a welcoming art piece that only Mother Nature can provide. It’s a beautiful collaboration of nature and universe providing us with inspiration to grow, explore and contribute to the beauty.

I am honored to be a part of theatre history in the making. I have learned some of the most wonderful things as part of the creative team of Broke Wide Open. Art By Mia has provided the  Logo Graphic and Editorial designs that will be the face to Broke Wide Open for years to come.  

A MUST SEE!!!…Rock WILK…. High energy, honest, and unforgettable, BROKE WIDE OPEN is a poetic and orchestral unveiling of truth with Rock WILK as both maestro and menace. In BROKE WIDE OPEN, Rock WILK, fostered three times and finally adopted as a baby, takes us on a journey where he recounts and relives life changing consequences and decisions. Like martyr, like savior, like rebel without pause, Rock WILK is insistently fighting to enlighten and protect anyone and everyone in his path. A force, a hurricane, a cyclone of well intentioned chaos, Rock WILK is a tempest of love; he is valor and destruction all wrapped up into one. Testing the limits of every relationship in his life, Rock WILK’s journey to explore cause, and find home, becomes both incessant and reluctant. Emotionally gripping and spiritually giving, BROKE WIDE OPEN is also hopeful with pockets of laugh out-loud, comedic revelation. Get your tickets TODAY!!

The Artisan Fair & Exhibit was established in 2006, in celebration of Comité Noviembre’s, 20th anniversary. Over 50 artesanos puertorriqueños from throughout the US and Puerto Rico participated and the event boasted an attendance of over 5000 people in this very first Fair.

For the past three years, CN has transformed, Hostos Center for the Arts and Culture at Hostos Community College into a typical Puerto Rican plaza with a fountain, palm trees, and artists, sculptors, vejigante mask makers promoting… and selling their wares while musical and cultural acts entertained throughout the day. This year will be no different at Hostos. CN will also continue to conduct cultural workshops for children and adults, like mask making, the history of the three kings’ celebration, Taíno storytelling in order to make sure that our youth learn about our culture.

An expanded exhibition area will showcase Puerto Rican authors.

This FREE Fair is an opportunity to kick-off the holiday shopping season by supporting our artesanos.

Small Vejigante mask making

November 28, 2012 6:30PM – 8:00PM Ages 5 – 16: 
Vejigante history and Art Culture ~

A vejigante is a folkloric character in Puerto Rican festival celebrations (mainly seen in Carnival time). Traditional colors of the Vejigantes were black, red, white, and yellow. Today, vejigantes wear brightly colored, ornate masks of all colors and a costume with bat-like wings. The term vejigante derives from the word vejiga (bladder) and gigante (giant), due to custom of blowing up and painting cow bladders. The masks are often linked to many festivals that continue today, especially in Loíza and Ponce.

We will discuss the history of the Vejigante masks and create one of our very own to be displayed as a piece of art.
