Latin Lover

Pete Cecere must have one sick crib. Evidently, he designed his pumpkin-colored home in western Virginia so it could house his collection of more than 12,000 pieces of folk art -- way impressive considering that the Louvre in Paris currently displays about 35,000 pieces.

In 2005, Cecere generously donated 1,000 works from his famed hoard to the ASU Art Museum. In honor of his contribution, 60 pieces from Bolivia, Paraguay, El Salvador, and other countries were selected for display in the "Everyday Miracles: Latin American Folk Art From the Cecere Collection" exhibit. The show examines the impact of Christianity and the Conquistadors on indigenous peoples.
