Local Stars in Laredo: Young People from Webb County Take the Stage

The art show that happens every year is one of the best parts of the Laredo fair. Imagine the most skilled young people in Webb County taking the stage to show off their artistic brilliance. It’s more than just an art show; it’s a celebration of the talented people who are making the future of our community possible. You’ll see the huge range of local artists’ work, from drawings to sculptures.

A place for young artists to express, make, and share their work

The yearly art show is more than just a chance to see beautiful art. It’s also a way for young artists in our community to express themselves. Imagine the walls being covered in bright art, each piece telling a different story. The kids are encouraged by this event to be as creative as they want to be and share their artistic ideas with the world.

Meet Gabriel C. Castillo, the Art Advocate of the Year for 2018

As an art supporter, Mr. Castillo has dedicated his whole life to this work. He has done a lot to make Laredo a great place for the arts, whether it’s by helping local artists, encouraging creative projects, or organising art-related events.

Art and Community Go Together Well

People in every community think that art has the power to move people, bring people together, and inspire them. This is exactly how Mr. Castillo is, and the fact that he was named Art Advocate of the Year shows how much good he’s done. It’s not just about art; it’s about using talent to bring people together.
