Las Sillas de Alamos
Feb. 21, 2013
Wooden chairs created by craftsmen from Alamos, Sonora, in Mexico are being turned into works of art by Scottsdale students and adult artists in the Scottsdale sister-city project “Las Sillas de Alamos” (The Chairs of Alamos). “Las Sillas de Alamos” is a cultural exchange project between Alamos and Scottsdale. The chairs are fashioned after a bishop’s chair from the colonial church in Alamos, which was established in the 1700’s. Scottsdale-Alamos City Project Coordinator Bob Rink; and Daniela Alcazar, a student artist and Alamos exchange student from Chaparral High School, discuss the project.
