Gallery of Art and Culture

The first work created by Don Rafel Elizondo was a cricket made of the vine "iguana tail" and his works are now are distributed widely in the world.  Remaining in his collection are nearly 120  pieces displayed since May 21st 2011 in a gallery which was formerly the family home for many years.  In addition to the sculptures other historically important objects are displayed along with some photographs.  We have also included a space for other local artists to display their works.
