Mexican Folk Art

I have been a fan of Mexican Folk Art since I first discovered it in the village of Tonola years ago. I have a lot of really great pieces in my home. It’s colorful and puts a smile on my face because none of it takes itself too seriously.
Between trips to Mexico, I visit a little shop in Evanston at 817 Chicago Avenue (at Main Street) called Casita Azul.

You’ll find handicrafts from every corner of Mexico and they have a really wide selection of Day of the Dead art which is where I bought this beautiful piece last October.
