  1. kawaayu: A tribute to the horse.
    by Ricardo Muñiz

    Artist Ricardo Muñiz ‘ one-man installation, <> opens April 11, 2014, from 4 to 9 pm and runs through May 18, 2014, at the Oakland Center for the Arts in Downtown Youngstown.

    The exhibit is open to the public in conjunction with scheduled showtimes for the Center’s production of the play, EQUUS.

    Ricardo’s exhibit pays homage to the horse and its beauty and power and mystique in Native cultures. His show combines paper sculptures and masks, body painting and photography. While the exhibit is free and open to the public, please be advised that the art includes full and implied nudity.

    For more information, contact the artist at coquichuloimages@yahoo.com or the Oakland Center for the Arts, 220 W Boardman St, Youngstown, OH 44503 (330) 746-0404.

    *Note: The horse had become extinct in the Americas approximately 7000 years prior to the arrival of the Spanish to the Americas. Hence, First Nation People had no word for the creature. Many Native cultures called them big dogs. Others just used a version of the word employed by the Spaniards. Hence, “caballo,” the Spanish word for horse, became “kawaayu.”
