Discover Seward Artist Jimmy Longoria at Winter Frolic


Jimmy Longoria
is the only Chicano/Latino/Hispanic to be awarded an Archibald Bush Foundation Artist Fellowship in Fine Art, and he is the only Minnesotan to have art in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago, the largest collection of Mexican Art outside Mexico.  Even though Jimmy is recognized internationally as a fine artist, he continues to practice giving back to the community by producing murals that deter gang graffiti in communities suffering gang presence.  He uses proceeds from his own art sales to do this important work.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire small studio works of Jimmy’s. You can find his work at the Ivy Building, Studio #213 during the Seward Winter Frolic on Saturday, Dec. 7, 10am – 5pm and Sunday Dec. 8, 12-5pm.
