Home » University News » Schreiner University’s Summerlin Visiting Artist Series Presents Art Meant to be Destroyed

Visiting Artist - AlfonsoKerrville, TX – Schreiner University presents the Summerlin Visiting Artist Series featuring artist Alfonso S. Hernandez Jr. A master artist and sculptor from Dallas, TX, Hernandez is known as the “Piñata Man” and the owner of No Limit Arts and Crafts, LLC. This exciting journey into the making of museum quality “Art Meant to be Destroyed” will take place on Tuesday, Nov 8, at 7 p.m. in the Junkin Campus Ministry Center at Schreiner University. This event is free and open to the public. Free parking is also provided.

The “Piñata Man” spent his youth in East Dallas about five minutes from Fair Park and recently showcased his art there during the Mundo Latino’s Dia de los Muertos exhibit at the State Fair of Texas. He originally studied drafting and design, has a technical drafting degree and worked several years in project management. In 2016, he felt drawn to experiment with his more colorful, creative side and is a self-taught genius in folded pieces of color paper. Passionate about his new craft as he perfected the piñata, he converted his garage into a studio and launched his company, No Limit Arts and Crafts. He now is a workaholic for giant size pop culture figures and cartoon characters.

Recently, Hernandez poured his soul into creating a giant piñata of Selena, who glows different colors from the inside, as a Catrina who rocks Tejano music in the afterlife. The newest mission for Hernandez is to continue evolving and inspire others to unleash their creativity from within. No Limit Arts and Crafts’ website is currently under construction, but you can see examples of his amazing work on Instagram @nolimitpinatas.

The Summerlin Visiting Artist Series is funded by the Summerlin Visiting Artist Chair which honors former Schreiner University President, Dr. Tim Summerlin, and the memory of his nephews Reuben and Daniel Summerlin.
