Recognition of Festival Poster Artist: Jorge Fernandez!
Mr. Fernandez, an award-winning artist was commissioned by De Colores to create the 2009 festival poster for their 17th annual celebration. Born in Cuba, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Fine Arts and credits the influence of the French painter, Seurat, in his fine pointillist drawings. He moved to New Mexico in 1995 and his life and artwork has been enriched by his experience here and today depicts local Latino subject matter fused with his Cuban experience.
2009 major sponsors included APS, UNM, Intel, Youth Development, Inc, and the Atrisco Heritage Foundation.
