On Friday, May 1

From 6:00–8:00 p.m.
Join us for a preview of a selection of works from exhibition Estamos Aquí (We Are Here). Part of the ExhibitsUSA traveling exhibition program, this exhibition features colorful serigraphs by contemporary artists, many of whom are Latino/Chicano. The artists learned this specialized printing technique through a collaborative Austin-based artist residency. The subject matters and visual language are diverse and celebrate an array of ideas, including identity, a sense of place, and traditions. 

At 7:00 p.m.
The Oklahoma City-based band Tequila Azul kicks off our outdoor concert series. The group will perform their mix of Pop, Rock, and Latin music.
