The model, Ms. Lupe López with photographer Marcos Dorado will share insights into each version of La Catrina as they were created over the past three years.

“Through this exhibit, you’ll gain a better appreciation for the icon from south of the border, and through her image, you’ll find a link to Mexican culture.”
