The San Antonio Museum of Art’s new exhibition is called, La Feria – Folk Art from Regional Fairs in Latin America. Regional fairs have been popular for centuries throughout Latin America. They occur in and around regional market towns of Mexico, Central and South America and have grown out of religious-based festivals and national holidays. By providing outlets for the sale of locally produced crafts and agricultural products, most of the fairs are a critical economic activity for their communities.
