Edinburg's Jardin del Arte

Jose Roberto Pulido " El Primo"

Last month, my husband and I decided to drive to Edinburg, Texas for an Arts Fair called “Jardin del Arte” held at  Edinburg’s City Hall. We have many fond memories of visiting Jardines del Arte all over Mexico and strolling through tree canopied parks, meeting many talented people. On our way, we talked about these memories and wondered what the Edinburg affair would be like. I am very pleased to say, we were not disappointed.

The setting was ideal and conducive to experiencing the Arts through different manifestations, the courtyard is beautifully landscaped with an area dedicated to honor Conjunto Tejano music that surrounds a sculpture depicting local musician Jose Roberto Pulido “El Primo” On the ground, around this statue we saw several granite tiles with an etched “star” similar to Hollywood’s walk of stars, with the names of other local Tejano musicians and entertainers such as Laura Canales, Johnny Canales, Lydia Mendoza, Freddy Fender, Los Hermanos Layton, Pepe Maldonado and many others.

Walking around we met many talented artists as we admired many works of art skillfully done with acrylic, oils, ink, charcoal, water colors, photography, screen prints, ceramics, sculpture, recycled paper and many more representations of our local art. Refreshments were sold while poetry and music were performed on a nicely set stage. The artists of the Rio Grande Valley seem to share a vein of inspiration that can only be fed by the eclectic, semi tropical lifestyle of this border region.

For more information about Edinburg’s Art Walk, please visit www.edinburgarts.com, plan to visit now that our weather will be changing and support the talented artists of “El Valle”.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.-Maya Angelou. La Vida Valle is where I write about "la vida" my life in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. I write about the food, the culture, the good times and the bad. I write about the people who make El Valle festive and laid back at the same time. Contributions and comments are always welcome .
