In its first year, the Festival Cervantes is a series of events put on by the Instituto Cervantes of Albuquerque with the aim of spreading the Spanish language through the medium of art. The fest kicks off this evening at UNM’s Latin American and Iberian Institute with a graffiti show from Mexico City artist Miguel Mejía (aka Neuzz), who’s come in specifically for the event. See the above link for a full schedule of events, which go through Monday.

If you've read one book in Spanish, chances are it's Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote. The classic account of delusional heroism is taught in high schools around the country, and it’s many a Spanish-as-a-second-language student's gateway into literary art set to a foreign tongue.
