Our Lady went through multiple transformations, and our current views do not reflect how the Virgin of Guadalupe was seen in earlier times. Dr. David Tavarez will introduce you to the many faces of a beloved icon that now encompasses many aspects of Latin American identity. The evening will include a festive Our Lady of Guadalupe procession featuring indigenous regional costumes and banners, music and samples of sweet tamales and atole – a traditional milky corn drink. This event is cosponsored by AIA, Houston Society with support from the Institute of Hispacinc Culture.
Tickets $24, Members $18
