Fiesta Song

Bronze sculpture of dancing lady playing the accordion with flowing braids and skirt by John Bennett, Texas State Artist 2010

For the accordian, I went to the music store here and had the owner strap on one of theirs so I could photograph it. I didn’t know how they worked or were worn. I tried to copy the piano accordian that Julieta Venegas plays.
