Volunteer in Sacramento: Holiday Gift Wrapping with Chicas Latinas

JOChristmasGifts

The end of the year has finally presented itself and calls for Chicas Latinas de Sacramento to help wrap Christmas gifts for the local organization called A Christmas Promise, on Sunday December 7th 2014 at The North Pole (1428 Howe Avenue Sacramento, CA 95825).

Each year, A Christmas Promise receives approximately 250 “Dear Santa” Letters from disadvantaged children acquired from church organizations, referral agencies, teacher and social workers in the Sacramento region.

kids

By granting the wishes of these children, A Christmas Promise- with the help of Chicas Latinas- Santa is sent to the homes of the children on Christmas Eve.

To be able to make this magic happen we will need 10 Chicas volunteers, or Santa’s helpers, to come and help wrap gifts (with a max of 16 volunteers)!

Additional help can always be used for delivery of gifts on Christmas Eve. For those interested in learning more on this or gift wrapping, please fill out the contact form below to get a head count and we’ll be sure to contact you with additional information!

RVSP & Connect on FB: Give to the Homeless at Cesar Chavez Park – Holiday Edition!

As temperatures begin to dip, we will be collecting donations for warm wearable clothing for men, women and children. We especially encourage men to clean out your closets as there are more men on the street than women. We’re also seeking socks and toiletries, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.

According to the Sacramento Housing & Redevelopment Agency, the homeless population in Sacramento has reached over 2,500 as of 2013 - A statistic that drives Chicas Latinas more than ever to continue giving back.

Donations will be accepted the morning of November 30th (you will see us set up with folding tables). Fill out the form to contact and/or arrange to donate prior: http://bit.ly/ChicasFeedSacHomeless

Latino & Mexicano Art Exhibits Featured at the Crocker

Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art
Sept. 21, 2014 – Jan. 11, 2015
IMG_0978.PNG
The exhibition explores the idea that we are “a nation of immigrants” by considering the varied contributions of Latino artists to American art and culture from the mid-20th century to the present. Featuring nearly 100 works across all media by some of the leading contemporary artists working in the United States, the exhibition will examine how their works express an evolving American experience. Latino artists across the United States were galvanized by the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. They created new images of their communities and celebrated hybrid cultural traditions. Approaching their practice with humor, irony, and valor, Latino artists critically probed American history and popular culture, revealing the possibilities and tensions of expansionism, migration, and settlement.

Arte Mexicano: Legacy of the Masters
Oct. 12, 2014 – Feb. 1, 2015
IMG_0979.PNG
The exhibition showcases the ideals, individualism, and intertwining artistic lives of modern Mexican artists. Composed of 30 paintings and works on paper by nearly 20 artists, the exhibition highlights their varied responses to the post-revolutionary call for a distinctly Mexican visual art. Arte Mexicano will cover a wide range of artists active throughout the 20th century, and will trace the impact of the Mexican Revolution, as well as the influence of Mexican muralism, pre-Columbian traditions, and European artistic movements. The show hopes to bring a fresh perspective to popular conceptions of Mexican art by showcasing a variety of artists working throughout Mexico and the United States—including Diego Rivera, Gunther Gerzso, Carlos Merida, Remedios Varo, and Alejandro Santiago—and consider their interpretations of Mexican, modern, and personal identities.
