Brochas y voces de la mujer centroamericana en Los Angeles
THURSDAY 7PM AT 257 SPRING ST. LOS ANGELES
“Brushes and Voices: Celebrating Central American Women in Los Angeles” will be the first of its kind to celebrate Central American women and their achievements in Los Angeles. Open and free to the public, the night will be filled with an art exhibit by Cecilia Mármol and Alicia Siu, a documentary clip of panamanian film-maker Anayanci Itzel Prado’s most recent work, a theatre piece by Raquel Gutiérrez, poetry and short story readings by author Rosanna Pérez, professor Alicia Estrada, professor Leisy Abrego and PhD student Oriel María Siu, music, words by Garifuna activist and cultural promoter Cheryl Noralez, and by Rosamaría Segura, author of the recently published book, “Central Americans in Los Angeles”. The purpose of the event is to honor these community voices and “brushes” as we also commemorate all Central American women’s daily struggles and lives in the city of Los Angeles. The MC of the night will be poet and novelist Oscar René Benitez. A night of community and sharing, the event will be hosted by Lot 44 Coffee Bar and the Lola Mora Gallery.
