It's not surprising that Pura Vida Worldly Art would have something special in store for National Hispanic Heritage Month. The shop and gallery of goods from across the globe is presenting Many Backgrounds: One American Spirit, an exhibit of artwork by Latino artists living in the Charlotte area. Luis German Ardila, Rogelio Calvo, Rosalia Torres Weiner and Nico Amortegui are among those featured. Weiner, the founder of Project Art Aid (a nonprofit organization helping to promote art in the Hispanic community) draws influence from her Mexican origins. Her zesty collection of colorful paintings portray renowned artists like Frida Kahlo and Salvador Dali.
