Members-Only Virtual Behind-the-Scenes Tour: Rita Flores de Wallace Collection
Join Lucha Martínez de Luna, Associate Curator of Latino Heritage, for a virtual behind-the-scenes look at highlights from the Rita Flores de Wallace collection. The Corn Mothers Project preserves the legacy of Colorado women leaders, activists, artists, spiritual healers, and educators. Corn Mother Rita Flores de Wallace spent her formative years travelling throughout Mexico with her family, studying Indigenous folk art. She also studied dance in the prestigious Bellas Artes Academy in Mexico City and performed with the Coahuilan dance troupe for 12 years. Rita moved to Denver with her husband John Wallace in 1978 and quickly began to work in schools and museums teaching Mexican folk art, dance, oral traditions, and her bordado mágico (magic embroidery) to hundreds of children.
