Milligan senior showcases eclectic artwork

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (March 30, 2016) – Milligan College senior Daniela De Los Santos shares her artistic development over the past four years through various styles and mediums in her upcoming exhibit, “Capiroteada.”

De Los Santos’ exhibit will open in the Milligan Art Gallery located in Derthick Hall on Sunday, April 3, from 2-4 p.m. The reception and show are free and open to the public.

“The word ‘Capiroteada’ comes from a traditional Mexican Lenten dessert dish usually served on Good Friday,” said De Los Santos of Brownsville, Texas, who hopes to pursue a career in animation. She is majoring in communications and fine arts.

However, she says the slang derivative of the term is lighthearted and refers to a grouping of mix-matched items that are hard to categorize—which is how De Los Santos considers her own work. She enjoys using bold outlines, vivid color and intricate patterns drawn from multiple cultures.

“The word represents my growth and interests over these past four years, as well as the varying subjects and mediums that will be appearing in my show,” said De Los Santos.

Her exhibition runs through April 8.
