My friends Corina Lunita (Jeweler) y Rigoberto Navarro (Stone Sculptor) produced our event
Sculpture Garden - Jardin de la Escultura @ La Cochera Cultural, Sunday Sept. 23, 2018.
They asked if the event could benefit the Brigada from San Pedro Itzican. I had told them of the wonderful efforts and work of this youth brigade and so was born our sculpture event.

Anita Torres Guerrero, Director and Coordinator of the Brigadistas from San Pedro Itzican
(2000 youth strong) brought a group of Brigadistas to help at the event
and act as ambassadors for the day.

As the afternoon progressed guests started to arrive.
Our dear friends Monica y Axel, traditional dance teachers, led us in an opening circle ritual
in preparation for the group's traditional dance.

We had invited our dear friend and music teacher Yanin Saavedra to perform at the event.
She brought with her friends and created a song circle.
The afternoon progressed beautifully.
And at the end of a long but enjoyable day, Anita loaded up the truck for the trip back to
San Pedro Itzican.
We'd like to thank the following for their caring support and participation:
