December 01, 2023

The South Broadway Cultural Center has announced its 28th annual exhibition commemorating the first apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a revered moment in history when she introduced herself to Juan Diego as the Mother of God and the mother of all humanity. The exhibition opens with an artist reception on December 9 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the center’s gallery.

Since 1924, the South Broadway community has gathered to honor this significant event, which occurred on the hill of Tepeyac in Mexico in 1531. The exhibition has become a cherished tradition, fostering a sense of unity and cultural richness within the community. This year, the South Broadway Cultural Center is particularly thrilled to mark the 28th year in its gallery space.

A highlight of this year's exhibition is the community altar, a centerpiece created by artist April Gallegos. Known for her distinctive artistic style and deep connection to cultural traditions, Gallegos brings a unique perspective to the annual celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The community altar serves as a focal point for collective reflection and reverence, inviting visitors to engage with the rich cultural and spiritual significance of the event.

The exhibition will be on view through December 30. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
