California sculptor Roberto Benavidez is known for his elaborate, fine art piñatas that play on themes of race, sexuality, art, sin, humor and beauty. Inspired by art history, Benavidez’s latest work brings to life the fanciful creatures found in Hieronymus Bosch’s iconic painting Garden of Earthly Delights and the whimsical marginalia found in various illuminated medieval manuscripts. The exhibition features several of Benavidez’s enchanted sculptures, made from papier-mâché, crepe paper and wire.
