Celebrate the Virgin of Guadalupe, whose importance as a national symbol of Mexico is as weighty as her adoration by the Catholic church, at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center this month.
Now in its 22nd year, La Virgen de Guadalupe art show features 35 artists interpreting the venerated image of the Virgin Mary that appeared to a peasant, Juan Diego, in 1531 in what is now Mexico City.
The work from local artists includes paintings, mixed media and photography.
It’s free, and the gallery is open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. The show runs through Jan. 4.
