Ten art pieces are part of the exhibit in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego installed today at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, 555 W. Temple Street and will be open to the public until December 16, 2019. The specially selected artwork by sacred artist by Lalo Garcia and artists Laura Vasquez Rodriguez, Rosa Maria Alvarez and Rick Ortega is installed adjacent to the chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe, which houses the only piece of the tilma or cloak in the U. S., from the original in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. The exhibit features images of the Virgin of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego, and other spiritual and nature images.
“With our artwork we honor the Virgin of Guadalupe, as the patroness of the arts,” said Lalo Garcia, who has created artwork which graces the walls of the Cathedral and parishes throughout the Archdiocese. “The intention was to give thanks for the blessings received through Nuestra Morenita and San Juan Diego, as patrons of the arts. Through the testimonies embodied by each one of the artists on their work, I invite the visitors to this exhibit to meditate on their own blessings and at the same time, to enjoy the beauty of each one of the pieces.”
The above comes from a Nov. 20 release from the L.A. archdiocese.
