Jessica Zapata was born in Mexico, a wonderful country extremely rich in culture, traditions, legends, music, art, architecture, literature and gastronomy. Currently based in Eugene, Oregon, she is a fervent cultural promoter and manager, architect and educator and has facilitated an extensive cultural promotion link between Mexico and various cities in the Northwest United States. In 2007, she founded Eugene Arte Latino, whose mission is to promote the music, dance, art, and values of Mexican and Latin American traditions in a warm and vibrant environment for the entire Lane County community. Jessica is also a mentor for several organizations and several Spanish-speaking youth. She offers monthly bilingual art workshops for Spanish-speaking children and youth and mothers.
