Please save the date for the opening reception for a new art exhibition, The Upright Revolution, taking place at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton, California on March 1, 2020 from 12pm to 2pm.
Curated by Jimmy Centeno, and inspired by Kenyan author Ngugi wa Thiong’o’s parable The Upright Revolution: Or Why Humans Walk Upright. Ngugi’s parable celebrates the interconnectedness of life during times of struggle.
I will be exhibiting one of my paintings, Sueno de inocencia, 2019, acrylic on canvas, 48 x 36 inches, from my ongoing Sueno painting series. To me, this painting compliments The Upright Revolution theme, as “Restraint is a life quality bestowed upon every one of us in divergent modes. In reference to “Sueno de Inocencia” Inocencia … Innocence represents each of us as people, and the deity represents our ancestry. Our ancestors, symbolized on all fours, figuratively presents our resistance for future paradigms.”
The exhibition features Margoth Abrego, Damola Adepoju, Mario Avila, Tito Calidonio, Arturo Cambron, Jimmy Centeno, Yaneli Delgado, Nolan Fansler Yolanda González, Mario Hernández, Dora Magaña, Pedro Rios Martinez, Ricardo O’Meany, Laura V. Rodriguez , Ernesto Vazquez and Sandra Vista.
The March 1 reception for The Upright Revolution also features a reading by Ngugi wa Thiong’o along with artists in attendance from 12pm to 2 pm at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton, California. Click here for directions. Looking forward to seeing you soon, please RSVP here.
