“Flores para el cementario.”
—by Pilar Pobil
Pilar Pobil, a local artistic treasure, is being awarded one of Spain’s top cultural awards—the Crus de Oficial de la Real Orden de Isabel La Catolic (The Cross of the Officer of the Royal Order of Quenn Isabella), for her work in the community that enhances the name of Spain. The award will be presented by the Councilor of Education from the Spanish Embassy in Washington, D.C. at a special ceremony to take place in the Tanner Humanities auditorium on the University of Utah campus on February 19 at 5:30 pm. Selected pieces of Pilar’s art will be on display. Monica Pasqual, Pilar’s daughter, will entertain at a reception afterward.
