Mercado Artesanal “Hecho a mano con corazón”

August 5, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm

A Celebration of Art, Love,and Unity..

Colectivo Mariposas in collaboration with La Catrina Cafe invite you to join us in this very special Art market (mercado Artesanal) Hecho a mano / handmade by local crafters, Jewerly makers, visual artists and much more.
This special Art market will bring the community together allowing local artists to exhibit and sell their work, and to help a person in need. One special artist attending this event is Monserrat Moran; a 29 year old woman that was born without both of her hands and one leg much shorter from the other. Monserrat creates skilled art just like the rest of the artists. Using her feet, elbows and whatever works, she gets it done. Monserrat is a great inspiration for all of us and while she keeps up with all her barriers due to her condition we want to help her to make those barries a little bit easier to carry on and to do that we need your support. She desperately needs a motorized wheelchair. This is one of the many necessities she has but for instance this will be the beginning of a new journey where she will be able to move easily.
It is known that handmade items are not just special because they are unique pieces but most importantly because who makes them shows their creativity, love, and passion, and as their pieces and skills express their feelings, many of the artists participating have shown their unity to this cause by donating items to be auctioned and raffled. Others have donated their time to participate on stage or using their amazing skills to raise funds as entertainers.
We deeply appreciate the demonstration of love and compassion to the one that is in need. Join us in this festivity, admire and acquire the beautiful work of the participating vendors, get your face painted or buy a balloon figure from Payasita Confetti. (Clown-Cofetti), dance to the catchy cumbia sonidera by DJ & Sonido MG, sing along with Jesus Rojas, Ramon Marino and Edgar Mendoza. Get a portrait by a well known muralista Maestro Alejandro Medina. Have fun, enjoy and let’s make an statement… Together we make a difference.
We are celebrating Art, Love and Unity!!
