La Retama Library Celebrates Female Artists with Chicas Bonitas Exhibit

CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS - Chicas Bonitas can be described as a colorful, often surprising fiesta of femininity. This special art exhibit featuring the work of regional and national female artists will open on Saturday, March 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at La Retama Central Library located at 805 Comanche Street.

The featured pieces celebrate the unique and sometimes emotional experiences of women through a variety of compelling images, paintings, and multimedia renderings.

Artwork created by local youth will also be displayed. These creations bring an obvious innocence and charm to a collection that is dramatically underscored with a culturally rich South Texas flavor.

Local artist Mayra V. Zamora curated the exhibit. Proceeds will benefit the Youth Art Camp Scholarships and Friends of Corpus Christi Public Libraries.

The event is free to the public.
