The visual humor, word plays and creativity employed in these images demonstrates a cultural vibrancy and energy that warrants our attention. The uniqueness of these images compelled the show‚s curator, Deborah Holtz, who is based in Mexico, to travel throughout the country capturing these various graphics in photographs.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row font_color=”#aeaeae” css=”.vc_custom_1415872632368{padding-top: 5% !important;padding-bottom: 5% !important;background-color: #252525 !important;}” type=”full_width” background_style=”normal” columns_height=”normal_height”][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_row_inner type=”boxed” css=”.vc_custom_1415872623771{padding-top: 35px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1432927515082{margin-bottom: 45px !important;}”]Armory Center For the Arts[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Sensacional!
