Our 2022 Featured Artist is Lisandra Di Liberto Torres. She has spent several years building a portfolio that reveals a mixture of reality and fantasy. She may be best known for her series of red cows with wings that she paints. They are a favorite subject for her because of the town in which she grew up in Puerto Rico, which is a center for the country’s milk production.
“We say that Hatillo has 38,000 people and 32,000 cows,” jokes Di Liberto!
