Dia de los Muertos Pinata Contest

The past two weeks third, fourth, and fifth grade art students have been working hard on their annual pinata entry for the K space Contemporary Art Gallery. The theme this year is alebrijes ( Mexican spirit animals). Our Texans created a colorful bull ( el toro) . Please go by K space to vote for our Menger Texan Pinata. Voting starts on Oct. 26 and ends Nov. 4. K space is located at 415 D Starr Street downtown. K space is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. The Dia de los Muertos festival is this Saturday, Oct. 27th, from 3 p.m. until midnight. ( I have been encouraging the students to go early. It does get crowded.)

Thank you artists for all your hard work and talent,

Ms. Limke
