The COS Art Gallery is proud to feature the work of Crystal Galindo for our first show of the spring 2014 semester! The exhibition, “Multifacetica: Un Cambio de Paradigma,” which translates to Multifaceted: A Paradigm Shift, features large and vibrant paintings that are full of life. Galindo’s work focuses on realistic portraiture combined with an assortment of patterns, landscapes and iconic symbols that tell the story of each person being portrayed.
