CLS Librarian Emerita and Core Faculty member Diana Rivera shares Latino art dating back to the 1930s in this video from Positively Michigan. The artwork is located in McCourtie Park, Somerset Township, Hillsdale County. Also on this video is Annie Boone.

"Thanks to Dan Salas of Positively Michigan, who recently produced a feature on McCourtie Park, home to 17 concrete bridges created in the Trabajo Rustico style. Salas and Ellis White filmed and photographed the work of Ralph Corona and George Cardoso, who constructed the concrete bridges resembling wood.

"Elena Herrada and I (Museo del Norte) were thrilled to work with them to continue documenting Mexican-American outdoor art in Michigan. Dan is a two-time Emmy winner for his work as a video journalist. Visit his youtube channel for more from his 40+ year career as a video journalist," wrote Rivera.
