Nuestro Tiempo Special Edition: Artes de Mexico : On the Cover

The Artes de Mexico Festival will be a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds, highlighting not only the works of Mexican artists but also those of Mexican-Americans in the Los Angeles area.

The illustrations on the cover are representative of the festival’s events. The mural “Corrido de Boyle Heights,” at top, by the East Los Streetscapers, will be seen on a guided bus tour of the murals of East L.A.

Below the mural, “The Four Estaciones” (“The Four Seasons”), a serigraph by Raoul De la Sota, will be among works on exhibit at Self-Help Graphics, also in East Los Angeles.

The serape, from Tlaxcala state, is among works to be displayed in “Folk Treasures of Mexico” at the Craft and Folk Art Museum. And performers of Danza Floricanto/USA will present newly created dance pieces in “Epopeya Mestiza,” at the San Gabriel Civic Auditorium.
