RI Latino Arts Cafe Recuerdos Kick-Off

August 15, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In partnership with the Council, Rhode Island Latino Arts’ 500 Years of Latino History programming will begin on August 15, 2015 from 12-2PM at the Southside Cultural Center with a Kick-Off of Café Recuerdos, a traveling humanities art installation that will engage participants with the theme of “Re-Examining America’s Social and Cultural History.”

The installation takes the form of a peddler’s cart, designed by Cuban-American artist Ana Flores. It features coffee cans painted with portraits of Latino Rhode Island immigrants, and an interactive story board where participants can add their own stories. As it travels throughout the state, coffee will be served, and oral histories will be collected by the Latino Oral History Project of Rhode Island. Humanities questions addressed will include: What is home? Is there any one American immigrant experience?

From July to November, community partners will host the installation, providing additional programming and promotions. Learn more about Café Recuerdos here.
