Tuesday, May 15, 7:00pm at the American University Katzen Arts Center
In conjunction with the American University Museum's exhibit 'Toledo Multiple', on May 15th the Oaxacan musical group Alma de Cuerdas will perform at the Katzen Arts Center. Alma de Cuerdas Ensemble was founded by violinist Octavio Zárate. This group, comprised of eight professional musicians hailing from the state of Oaxaca, is committed to fostering the arts among the youth, and to bringing the music that identifies Mexico as a nation of great cultural diversity to all regions within and outside the country.
As Mexico's most prolific and influential graphic artist, Francisco Toledo has been exploring the fantastical and expanding the expressive range of his printmaking over more than 50 years. On view now, the exhibition 'Toledo Multiple' encompasses a wide range of Toledo's work, revealing the progression and creative process evidenced in his printmaking.
