Political Piñatas

Description

When artist Diana Benavídez makes piñatas, they aren't meant to be broken. They get put on pedestals. They become sculptures meant to provoke conversations.

Giant tampons. An over-sized can of pepper spray. A drone. Benavídez’s aren’t your average piñatas.

Today, a story about an object typically known for its destruction, not creation.

Only Here can you find a San Diego artist packing pinatas with political messages instead of candy.
