About this grant

This grant will support the efforts of the Flint Institute of Arts to promote the Las Artes de Mexico, an exhibition celebrating the rich and diverse artistic traditions of Mexico. A gala event will open the exhibition at the art institute and will be part of a series of activities being coordinated citywide during Hispanic Heritage Month. As part of the gala, local Hispanic/Latino restaurateurs will prepare authentic cuisine, and the Ballet Folklorico from Veracruz, Mexico will provide live entertainment. Ballet Folklorico is a dance group of high school and college students that perform traditional dances representing the various states of Mexico and the indigenous dances of Veracruz.
