Lotería is a traditional Mexican game of chance, similar to bingo, that uses images on a deck of cards instead of plain numbers. There are 54 images; each has a name and an assigned number. The cards are very colorful and the imagery on them is broadly recognized in all of Mexico, other Latin American countries, as well as European nations.

The most recognized version of Lotería is the “Don Clemente Gallo” rendition which was introduced in Mexico in 1887 by the French businessman, Don Clemente Jacques. The owners today own the registered trademark and have continued this version through 3 generations with the original artwork remaining the same.

All 54 images of the original deck will be represented in the show. Here is a link to the original Loteria set:  http://loteria.elsewhere.org/clemente1/

In addition, artists are creating cards from a second set of Loteria cards #55 - 108. These works will be 3" x 5" max. Here is a link to the lesser known set, which is equally fun ~ http://loteria.elsewhere.org/clemente2a/
