Emily Zaiden, the lead curator and director, says that they “are handcrafted objects that are beautiful, creatively designed, made with care and love, and also that we discard.”
Yesenia Prieto is a third-generation piñata maker and the founder of Piñata Design Studio, where they make custom piñatas. Growing up, her father was a sculptor and her mother was a piñata maker, so she was exposed to both art and the tradition at an early age. Now she sees a lot of crossover between the two.
