About the event

Ocotlan de Morelos is home to a magnificent 16th century Dominican monastery and cloister complex. We will start our tour at the cloister museum, which houses the works of Rudolfo Morales, who incorporated elements of magic realism into his work.One of Mexico’s greatest artists, he used his earnings to restore buildings and create cultural centers throughout the valley. Morales made sure that much of the restoration work was done by local women who developed skills for later work and established a computer training center for young people. We will see the grand mural near the market, and then visit Morales’ home where he had two studios. After lunch with Frida in the market we will visit the blacksmith Apolinar Aguilar who forges swords, knives, and martial art weapons as well as domestic utensils. He hand-forges each item using methods that date back to the colonial period. For his source of metal: he uses old car parts, bronze plumbing pieces and door fixtures.
