¡Artes Vivas!

November 11, 2017

We are pleased to announce that the annual Mercado de las Artes Hispanic arts market has been re-imagined as a one-day event titled ¡Artes Vivas! The Market will take place Saturday, November 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

¡Artes Vivas! will continue to be a festive, casual market event showcasing the works of 40 noted Hispanic and Latino/a artists, with the addition of public performances and programming to engage and reflect our community pride and diversity. Admission to the plaza events and all programming and performances will be free to the public as well as the marketplace making it a family-friendly event for all.

Each year the Heard Museum will continue to honor and highlight an ¡Artes Vivas! Signature Artist. This year’s signature artist is Martin Moreno of Laveen, Arizona. Moreno specializes in mural, mosaic, print works, and sculpture but is also known as a teacher who shares the richness of what art contributes to a well-rounded education.

Through programs like ¡Artes Vivas! the arts are made “live” through the celebration of culture that is expressed through all art forms: music, performance, lecture, food and participation in them. At the Heard Museum there is a unique opportunity to celebrate and recognize the intersections of culture and art between American Indian and Latino peoples, and we are deeply committed to furthering those connections and celebrating the richness and diversity of our artistic community.
