Latino Week celebrates "Carnaval del Barrio" with cultural activities in a series of events at SUNY New Paltz, NY. During the week, participants enjoy the Latin American sounds, art, dance, fashion and the latino diaspora in New York City.
The feeling behind this festival is to unify the students and alumni of the New Paltz community. "Carnaval del Barrio" grows into the hearts of the participants with their own beautiful heritage.
The aesthetic depicts the carnival identity in Latin America and the echo of the festivities in places like Spanish Harlem, Washington Heights, South Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn. The illustrations tell the story of pride, culture, history and unity among the Latin American countries.
