Xipe Projects: Latin American Masks and Popular Art, Huntington Beach, CA

Curator and Assistant Director for Xipe Projects. After earning my degree in 2011, I co-founded a nonprofit educational foundation for Latin American Art called Xipe Projects. Xipe Projects opened its doors on November 11, 2011 and since then, we have hosted a wide variety of exhibitions, cultural events, and educational symposiums. Our facility now houses approximately 4000 objects many of which have been previously exhibited by museums, university, and commercial galleries. Our mission is to help disseminate information about, and stimulate interest in, Latin American masking and popular art through conducting and underwriting research, exhibitions and the conservation of masks, costumes, dance paraphernalia and popular art of various Latin American traditions. www.xipeprojects.com
