The collaboration between The Latino/Latin American Studies Center, also known as “El Centro” at the Austin Community College Riverside Campus, and the Serie Project, Inc. led to 63 pieces of art exhibited on the second floor Bldg. G of the campus that will remain through the Spring semester. On November 1, the unveiling of an ofrenda for the late Sam Coronado created by Mary Jane Garza, along with ACC El Centro staff, Yolanda Sanchez and Gloria Rodriguez, will be on view. The public will have an opportunity to take an item to contribute for a loved one or pet from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. (Bldg. G).
