    Paper Cutouts to Steel

    Arturo L. Garza / Arts In Film, Documentary, Shorts / USA / 2012 / Art, Latino, Spirituality / 29 mins
    Carmen Lomas Garza celebrates her Mexican American heritage through traditional art forms rendered in her unique style. Among those forms are papeles picados, the Mexican art of cut paper, familiar as banners that flutter in the breeze at birthday parties. Imagine these paper cut-outs as grand in scale as the great Mexican murals, built to withstand Texas hurricane winds and abate freeway noise, but like their paper ancestors, letting air and light pass.

    In Person: Director Arturo Garza and Artist Carmen Lomas Garza will appear along with her unique art.
