Coconut Footprints y Afro-Latinidad

Coconut Footprints y Afro-Latinidad is Yovani’s newest project –  Hand painted coconuts designed with mostly raw materials: dried Marigold and Sunflower leaves from her altar. Thick green leaves, blooms and red/pink buds from my holiday Christmas Catcus plants. Chamomile, sunflower seeds, and pennies. She is preparing for a local gallery showing this Spring. Michelle Ponce is the gallery Director and Curator of 1Spot Gallery in Downtown Phoenix. Michelle is a wonderful Poet, Performer and Bomba dancer from Isabella, PR. The two have created a colectiva of poets/writers/artists, Mujeres del Sol. Our debut event is is March for Women’s History Month 2013 in downtown Phx.
