Bellevue University will feature “Artesano,” a special art exhibition, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. The exhibit will be on display now through Friday, Sept. 29.
On Thursday, Sept. 28, from 4 - 6 p.m., attendees will have the chance to hear from historian Marisol Arbelaez who will talk in detail about the Artesano exhibit.
The exhibit and presentation will be located in the Joyce Norene Wilson Gallery inside the Hitchcock Humanities Center, at 1040 Bruin Blvd., Bellevue, Nebraska.
Works in the collection come from various indigenous cultures throughout Mexico, Central America and South America. Artesano artists are known to make everything by hand according to tradition. Arbelaez' presentation is free and open to the public.
The exhibit includes paintings, pottery and textile work.
