Camilo Ontiveros: In the Ring, Museum of Latin American Art

Que Te Vaya Bien! Avenue Studio 50, Inc.
It’s the phrase we all tell each other when we’re going on a trip – que te vaya bien! But when your mama doesn’t approve of you going to a party and you leave anyway, the tone might change a little. A large group of artists take on this saying in a new show curated by Dr. Laura Medina, a professor of Cal State Northridge and Jose Orozco a professor at Whittier College. Head to the opening reception on Saturday, October 13 at 7 p.m. to check out the artworks. The same night you can check Cidne Hart’s photographs of Guatemala in her show “Guatemala: A Tribute.” Si vas, que te vaya bien!
