Elsie Deliz: Tres Reyes Magos currently on view at La Marqueta

The exhibition is dedicated to the Dia de Reyes (Three Wise Men) on the Feast of the Epiphany. The artist takes a look-back to her days as a child, growing up in Isabela, Puerto Rico, where along with her brother and sisters, considered the Feast of the Epiphany to be the highlight of their year.

Below are a few images taken of the exhibition.
