Global Arts Showcase: Mes de la Cultura

When: September 22, 2021 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Join Arizona Public Media and the Pima County Public Library in celebration of the rich Mexican-American and Latino cultural heritage of Southern Arizona during Mes de la Cultura! Enjoy a virtual celebration of Mexican-American and Latino art, music, and dance with performances by Mariachi Estrellas de Tucson, Mariachi Los Changuitos Feos, and Ballet Folklórico Tapatío.

You’ll get a first look at the "Arizona Illustrated" story about Carlos Valenzuela, a Chicano tile artist, and his work across Tucson's south side. Plus, you'll get an inside view of the Pima County Public Library’s Frank De La Cruz Borderlands collection!

After the show, performers will be sharing more about the rich cultural history of these art, music and dance forms, share some of their own experiences performing, and answering your questions during a live Q&A. We hope you’ll join the conversation!
