News From Across ARPS

A small selection of artwork by 7th graders is on display at both the Amherst and Northampton locations of La Veracruzana for Dia de los Muertos (Nov 1&2).  Students developed unique prints inspired by traditional sugar skulls (calaveras de azúcar) that are associated with the cultural holiday. The pieces honor friends, family members, and other inspirational or intriguing people. If you happen to be in either downtown this weekend, swing in and feast your eyes!
