Dear Museo Supporters and General Public,
We regret to announce the passing away of Javier Quezada Peña, Sr., artist and humanitarian, this past weekend in Houston, Texas. He was a long-time volunteer and artist-in-residence of Museo Guadalupe Aztlan, Houston, Texas. I recieved a call from his surviving son, Javier Quezada, Jr., of his passing away at his home.
Even at his advanced years of age, Mr. Quezada Peña, Sr. was a dedicated volunteer who was un hombre de palabra. He toured with our Museo to many locations, such as the University of North Texas, Tarrant Community College, Laredo Community College, and others.
For one of our Annual Dia de los Mu***os Celebration, he prepared some calacas to exhibit at schools. His appears in the attachment above.
In closing, the passing of Mr. Javier Quezada Peña, Sr. leaves a deep void at our Museo, I remember him as a smiling and positive-minded artist. See these two Youtube videos to learn more about this rare artist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIX7gQsX5xg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALjCsw7zxXI
