Would you like to see a jaw-dropping exhibition of super creative piñatas?
Would you like to see fantastic works of art that have been inspired by the traditional Mexican piñata?
Piñatas: The High Art of Celebration is now on display at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park!
I’ve never seen so many unique piñatas all in one place. And so many unusual ones!
In addition to more familiar traditional piñatas, visitors to the exhibition will see unusual piñata costumes, creative piñata wall art, piñatas with political messages, humorous piñatas, pop culture piñatas . . . even a life-size car piñata! (That car piñata would hold a lot of candy!)
According to the Mingei’s website, this is one of the first-ever exhibitions to spotlight piñatas as a traditional craft and vibrant contemporary art form.
I was excited to see so many unexpected creations. It never occurred to me that piñatas might be crafted as small hummingbirds or butterflies, or a bag of Cheetos, or a bottle of COVID-19 vaccine!
