Do your palms sweat at the sight of Día de los Muertos figurines? Do you experience dry mouth when confronted with massive collections of santos? Do you wake in frozen sweat, clutching your pillow as the night terrors still echo in your ears: There's only so much punched tin in the world? You may suffer from Restless Folk Art Syndrome along with thousands of your neighbors. That's why there's a North Valley Art Fiesta. With tons of handmade New Mexican art for sale from artisans like tinsmith Jason Younis y Delgado and maker of calavera pop-art figurines Celeste Medina, plus live music by Carlos and Vicky Otero and gourmet grilled cheese on hand from the Cheesy Street Food Truck, it's the perfect valve to release that dreadful pressure that only a real folk art maniac can know.
