What kinds of things would you see if you were going to a Mexican market? Perhaps you'd find beautiful blossoms, like the ones pictured in Diego Rivera's painting The Flower Carrier. At this Family Studio, youll take a trip to our Family Mercado and create a variety of your own Mexican marketplace items. Enjoy a 2:00 p.m. reading of My Papa Diego and Me/Mi papá Diego y yo, by Rivera's daughter, Guadalupe Rivera Marín. Please note: the author will be unable to attend as planned on September 20th.
