Oh my gosh, what’s happening at Latinopia.com?! Hola Mis Queridos! Your Tia Tenopia here and you’ve probably been wondering what the heck is going on with our homepage. Well, yes, we’re redoing our homepage. We thought we might close it down for a few days until we got the new look up but decided that many of you depend on it for school assignments and we didn’t want to disrupt that! So bear with us as we make some changes to make the site more user friendly.
This week we have new postings in theater, art and music. Our new Moment in Time celebrates the theatrical exchange between two important Latino theater companies–El Teatro Campesino from the United States and Los Mascarones (The Masked Ones) from Mexico City. This exchange took place in 1973, check out the details of this historic photo.
In art we have a new interview, In His Own Words, with bay area artist Malquías Montoya. Malaquías has been a pioneer printing maker since the 1960s. His politically committed art spans the themes of the Viet Nam War, the Farm Worker’s Movement, the La Raza Unida political party and Immigration. Anywhere you will find people struggling for justice and equality, you will find Malquías lending his powerful poster art and print imagery to aid in their struggle.
And, from San Antonio, the Conjunto Aztlán returns with another original composition, “Rosario.” Check out these new Latinopia postings and, again, bear with us for a few more days as we fine tune the new Latinopia look!
Abrazos from your Tia Tenopia.
