Tapia is a self-taught artist. His work is an extension of the Hispano folk art tradition that was established in New Mexico in the 17th century and has continued to develop during the past 400 years. His approach is to bring that tradition up to date so that it reflects and comments upon the religious, political, and social issues that are important in today’s world. Along with conventional santero religious imagery, Tapia incorporates prostitutes, gangs, and saints in modern dress. Tapia’s awards include an NEA grant in 1980 and a New Mexico Governor’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts in 1996. The event is sponsored by the Paul Frederick Sheffer Memorial Fund and the Colorado College Catholic Community.
Monday, April 23, 2018 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. in Richard F. Celeste Theatre.

After faculty in your department identify students they will be researching with this summer, please work with them and take a moment to fill out the Summer Research Payment Form (found at the bottom of this SCoRe web page- www.coloradocollege.edu/offices/dean/students/research-opportunities/for-faculty-and-staff/initiate-funds-dispersal.html). The form will request specific information to ensure students receive their payments correctly and in a timely manner. Filling in the set-up form should be all you need to do to set up the student’s pay. After we receive the information, we will confirm the payment arrangement and finalize payments. Students will have funds dispersed via direct deposit (if set up with the college) or checks will be sent to their Worner boxes. Students will be paid on the Friday of the week they start their research. Please direct any questions to Lisa Schwartz (lschwartz@coloradocollege or 719-389-6685).
