Latin America

The Bishop Arts District is gaining pieces of Latin America in a new arts showroom.

The showroom, located off Jefferson Boulevard in Dallas, also will have a cafe serving wines, beers, and foods with a Latin flair. 

On the second Saturdays of each month, guests can attend workshops and hear live performances to become more informed about Latin American traditions. 

“Mercado Artesanal is a community place to bring together all cultures,” according to the showroom website.

Its social mission goes beyond education about Latin culture. Mercado Artesanal is also sponsoring a tree reforestation project in Oaxaca, Mexico as well as the construction of a school in remote Peru where local students including homeless youth can learn a trade.
