Extravagancia de Piñatas

A MUST SEE EXHIBITION:  Enjoy the amazing talent of Corpus Christi’s young artists!

This year K Space Contemporary hosts the 5th Annual Extravagancia de Piñatas exhibition and competition for youth. Local K-12 teachers and after-school instructors have worked with their students and club members to create piñatas that celebrate the beauty of Mexican design.

From October 29 through November 7, visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite pinatas in three categories: Elementary (K-5), Middle School (6-8) and High School (9-12). Cash awards will be given for piñatas receiving the highest number of votes in the following.  Group leaders must use awards toward classroom supplies.

Extravagancia de Piñatas is on display at K Space Contemporary October 29 to November 14.

Note to Teachers: The piñata show has ended.  Please pick up your pinatas November 19-21, 11 am to 5 pm.  (December 3 at the latest)  K Space will be closed for Thanksgiving, November 22-30. Thank you all for your participation!
