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.
