Artist Workshop at SFCC: Students will participate and learn to apply vinyl sticker designs to ceramic surface


Horacio Rodriguez creates ceramic sculptures that mimic his layered identity as he explores borders, memory, and cultural identity by fusing on Pre-Hispanic and Mestizo Culture with the visual language of western dominant cultures. Rodriguez is an artist and educator originally from Houston, Texas. Graduate of Montana State University in 2016, Rodriquez has since shown his work extensively, including at Granary Arts and a residency and show at The Utah Museum of Contemporary Arts. In 2020 Rodriquez received the Mellon Foundation Projecting All Voices Fellow out of ASU’s Herberger School of Design where he focused on creating diverse and underrepresented voices in the arts.
