Huichol Bead & Yarn Art

Huichol Bead & Yarn ArtThe Huichol are one of many indigenous groups in Mexico. They are renowned for their colorful detailed beadwork, yarnwork, ceremonial use of peyote and unique hats. The traditional homeland of the Huichol is in the small highland area in between the Mexican states of Nayarit, Jalisco, Zacatecas, and Durango. We are proud to be currently featuring primarily the work of Huichol artisan Ignacio Lopez and his family. Many around Boulder will recognize his artwork from his 2009 shows at the Boulder Public Library and periodic representation on the Pearl Street Mall. We have been able to facilitate Ignacio's involvement with the University of Colorado's Latin American Indigenous Languages Study Project, and as such Ignacio is able to continue his sojourn in Colorado, teaching the Huichol language and creating his beautiful unique artwork.
