San Jacinto Plaza Reopening

Arturo Negrete of Taller 75 Grados (from Mexico City) did a live silk screening demonstration in El Paso for the reopening of San Jacinto Plaza (April 16, 2016), and gave away 1000 prints of Charlie Ramirez's alligator image:

There were long lines of people waiting to receive a free alligator print.  Someone joked that the line went clear back to the Kentucky Bar in Ciudad Juarez.
