Fulgencio is in Mexico to open two concurrent solo shows--one at Galeria Indigo in Valle de Bravo, in the state of Mexico and the other in Mexico City for World Art Day. Galeria Indigo produced a 50-page color catalog of his most recent works for the show, titled The Music of Wings. If you are interested in a copy of the catalog, feel free to send us a comment and we will mail you one. The catalog includes an essay by Jorge Pech on Fulgencio's latest works.

Day of the Dead at Tacoma Art Museum draws 4000 visitors to closing ceremony

Fulgencio was honored to lead a team of young people, fellow artists and community volunteers in the creation of his 9th sand painting for TAM's annual celebration of Day of the Dead, held November 3rd, 2013.
TAM will be expanding, after recently breaking ground on a new wing. Fulgencio's design included the footsteps of the dead, (at the far end of the tapete), representing TAM's stepping out into new areas and "going places".  

Remembering those who have passed away @ SAM

This annual tradition of creating temporal works is inspired by sand paintings made in the public squares for Day of the Dead celebrations in Oaxaca, Mexico. The scale of these works is amazing. They use dump trucks to bring in the sand!
