Los Trompos, or ‘the spinning tops,’ is a joyful interactive art installation by contemporary Mexican designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena. Inspired by the popular children’s toy, each woven top has a unique shape inspired by nature and traditional Latin American design, architecture and folk art. Five of these colorful, large-scale sculptures will be on display on the Arts District campus through October.
Artworks on loan from Scottsdale Public Art, Scottsdale, Arizona.
Los Trompos is part of the Breckenridge International Festival of Arts, which runs Aug 11–20, 2017.
Additional support for this exhibition generously provided by The Summit Foundation.
