A celebration of heritage: Angela Hernandez's quinceañera exhibition at the Dixon Art Gallery

As GMSD continues to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th to the 30th, we shine a spotlight on Angela Hernandez, a student at Houston High School. Angela's connection to her Hispanic heritage has led to a unique partnership with the Dixon Art Gallery.
Together, they've curated an exhibition that captures the essence of a quinceañera, a significant cultural tradition in many Hispanic communities. A quinceañera is a grand celebration marking a young girl's transition into womanhood when she turns 15. It is a time-honored event filled with symbolic rituals, vibrant music, and elegant dances.
Angela's passion for her heritage and her contribution to this exhibition offers a meaningful glimpse into the rich tapestry of Hispanic culture during this important month of recognition and celebration.
