Mission District “Calle 24” Latino Art Stroll & Mural Tour | SF
Acción Latina invites you to participate in Paseo Artístico: “Protect The Sacred.” A full day of free, interactive, bilingual local art activities for the entire family and community on Saturday October 12, 2019 from 12PM-8PM in the Calle 24 Latino Cultural District, San Francisco.
This month’s “Paseo Artistico: Protect the Sacred” will bring awareness to local Native American artists, activists and allies to connect the environmental justice movement from San Francisco to the Amazon. Protect the Sacred comes from the mural of the same name on 24th Street and Florida in San Francisco’s Mission District. The mural’s two creators, local artists Eli Lippert and El Chavi will offer an artist talk in front of the mural outside on 24th and Florida accompanied by Aztec dancers and local musicians Miguel Govea with students from Community Music Center Latin American music ensemble.
Activities will feature local native artists and activists Kanyon Sayers-Roods (Ohlone) and Morning Star Gali (Ajumawi) will present their work about organizing for Native Peoples justice movements in California. Amazon Watch Executive Director Leila Salazar-Lopez will present about the fires in the Amazon and the impact on native peoples in Brasil. Asuncación Mayab will showcase live music and dance from Mayan communities of the Yucatan, while local Mission District musician and shaman Jorge Molina (Peru) leads an all ages music workshop with Loco Bloco. Rupa and the April Fishes will bring their eclectic music with an environmental justice message, while Vanessa Sanchez gives a free preview of her new show “Pachuquismo” a retelling of the Mexican American women in the Pachuco movement through tap dance, documentary video and Mexican native song. The event ends with “Encuentritios” musical concert featuring local bands at Accion Latina on the back patio.
As always there will be several free arts classes and workshops for all ages and experience levels including painting and drawing classes at Mission Cultural Center and Alley Cat Books, along with a arts and crafts table at St. Peters School.
