Cristina Sosa Noriega is a San Antonio-based artist who created her own version of the classic Mexican game Loteria. In 2004, the artist had the idea to update a classic game. Cristina selected 27 of the original 54 icons found on the traditional Mexican Loteria game and replaced them with 27 new, modern-day icons designed by Noriega, herself. Her version features artistic renditions of the familiar icons the previous generations are accustomed to, along with brand new additions. Loteria is a well-known symbol of Mexican heritage for many Mexican Americans, including Noriega, who created My Loteria to connect her two heritages through her artistic passion.
