We invite you to enjoy Pencas del Corazón/Heart of the Cactus, an exhibit of community artwork created in a series of virtual pop-up events guided by featured local visual and performing artists and curators.
Pencas del Corazón is a tribute to the culturally significant cactus plant that symbolizes resilience and sustenance for many Latinx cultures.
An inaugural Rydell Visual Arts Partnership awardee, Pencas del Corazón celebrates the culmination of a year-long project between lead artists, Yesenia Molina and Irene Juárez O’Connell, the Watsonville community, and Arts Council Santa Cruz County.
