Call for Participation to All DPS Arts Students

Let’s welcome Vochol®  to Denver by showcasing the ingenuity of DPS  arts students!
The concept of Vochol®  – Huichol Art on Wheels  was developed by personnel at the Museo de Arte Popular. This was after they saw a series of other cars with the same concept, yet different materials.

Vochol®  is the Culmination of:
9,408 hours    2000,000 glass seed beads    35 lbs of special resin, fabric, pain, and yarn

  the Creative inspiration of two Wixarika (Huichol) families from West Central Mexico.

 Vochol®  will be on display at the Denver International Airport from June – August, 2012
DPS Student artwork will also be displayed  during this time at D.I.A.
Student field trip, Unveiling Ceremony  to D.I.A., tentative dates are May 22 or 23 (buses provided)
