Today, the Boyle Heights Farmer's Market launches at the Mariachi Plaza converging the worlds of fresh food, music, visual art, crafts and vendors in a lovely community setting. Look out for the works of Erin Yoshi & Cekis, who will be selling prints & original pieces along with the other artists. Enjoy the live mariachis as well as the sounds of DJ Spinorita. Enjoy a great cultural night outdoors! - Moni Pineda
"The Mariachi Plaza brings together people of all generations to enjoy live music and djs. The music carries throughout the Market emanating from the new beautiful stage. Djs Spinorita, Alkaline and 3rd-E will be playing music from an array of genres including: Salsa, Hiphop, Broken-beat, Afrobeat, Soul and Oldies. Their music will move the crowd and stir the dance floor. In addition, live performances by Beond of Acid Reign, debuting new music from his Solo Album and more bands to be announced…
Primera Taza Gallery will be featuring artwork by Erin Yoshi, Miguel Bounce Perez, Sofia Maldonado, Cekis, Raul Chose Gonzalez and Vyal Reyes. A group of muralists, graffiti writers, and street artists whose work has been featured across the United States and have traveled extensively to contribute to mural art production in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Cuba. Through intertwining graffiti aesthetics with Latino/Asian cultural symbolism, typography, and narrative story telling, the artists create vibrant visual representations of the dynamic cultural tapestry of the Americas, while reclaiming art space for public discourse.
While original pieces of artwork are available for purchase in Primera Taza, prints of some of the artist will be for sale in Mariachi Plaza."
Come join and enjoy the fun.
