Extravagancia de Piñatas

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

[one_half]This year K Space Contemporary hosts the 8th 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 fantastic creatures known as Alebrijes.

The votes have been tallied!  Below are the 2018 winning piñatas. Cash awards are given for piñatas receiving the highest number of votes (1st and 2nd places)  in three categories: Elementary (K-5), Middle School (6-8) and High School (9-12).  Group leaders must use awards toward classroom supplies.[/one_half]
