Fiesta in G.R

Raymond Trujillo's avatar Raymond Trujillo

My name is Raymond Trujillo and this year I’m creating an art prize that combines sculpture, Mexican folk art, dance and live entertainment. The piece, which will center around a piñata, will be called “Fiesta In Grand Rapids.” The piece will introduce our city to Mexican culture by also incorporating Mexican folklore Dance with Mexican craft. I also intend to introduce the Hispanic culture’s love of clowns by periodically presenting a performer Mundin the clown who will entertain the crowd with twisting balloon art. This will be an interactive piece that combines folk dance, sculpture and live art forms.
