During National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) we recognize and celebrate the independence, histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. This observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Regan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period. This is a wonderful opportunity to focus attention upon the contributions of the Hispanic community.
Here at American Greetings,our Hispanic Resource Network celebrated by hosting the very talented artist and writer, Augusto C. Bordelois, to allow our associates to learn about his work and what inspires him to create such beautiful artwork.
A native of Havana, Cuba, and a graduate of the University of Havana, Augusto completed extensive study in sculpture, ceramics, costume design for theatre and cinema, and classical drawing and painting. Augusto has received impressive international recognition for both his literary pieces and visual artwork. We invite you to read more about him and see his impressive and beautiful work at www.AugustoFineArt.com.
