Learn more about ancient Peruvian art from the Max Uhle’s collection at the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, Berkeley; hear from award-winning Peruvian composer, Jimmy López Bellido; and experience a bit of Peru in San Francisco with dance performances and food tastings, highlighting the city’s long history with Peruvian gastronomy and its national drink, pisco.
