Our Lady of Controversy: Alma Lopez October 13th

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Artists, lovers of art, feminists, Virgen de Guadalupe aficionados and everyone else will have a couple of chances to catch presentations by contemporary artist and author Alma Lopez on Our Lady of Controversy on Thursday October 13th.  I had a chance to view Our Lady, one of Alma’s works at the Oakland Museum of California recently and I can say that you’ll find her work exciting and, as the title of her book suggests, not without controversy.

Thanks to Gabriela Nocito, Director of Library Services at NHU and to Peggy Cabrera from SJSU for sending the information on these two presentations by Alma Lopez, both taking place on Thursday October 13th.
