Johnnie Walker and Hispanic Heritage Foundation partnered for our 30th Annual Hispanic Heritage Awards (HHA’s) airing October 6th on PBS. “Culture-Stela” an original work, exclusive for our 30th HHA’s was signed on the red carpet by HHA honorees and performers at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC. “Culture-Stela” is a reflection of the transformative power of creative collaboration in the arts.
Washington, DC-based artist, art director and designer, Juan CRI Pineda created “Culture Stela” which coincides with “Look Back, Move Forward” theme of the 30th Anniversary HHA’s and Johnnie Walker’s “Keep Walking America.” “Culture Stela” serves as a tribute to Latino contributions and culture. Proceeds of the signed artwork will benefit the Hispanic Heritage Foundation.
Honorees Luis Fonsi, Gael Garcia Bernal, Rudy Bessera, along with performers Locos Por Juana, and presenters Dolores Huerta and J.W. Cortes signed the artwork as they finished their red carpet interviews and made their way into the Warner Theatre. We are honored to take part in this beautiful tribute!
