Concert: Maqueos Music
Maqueos Music celebrates Oaxacan musical traditions including sones, jarabes, and more. The LA-based band, made up exclusively of young people, is led by Estanislao Maqueos, who teaches traditional songs to second-generation Oaxacans who might not have grown up around the rich musical culture of their parents. Bring a picnic and some sunscreen—it’s a summer concert for the whole family in the Fowler’s Art Council Amphitheatre!

About the Exhibition
A longtime resident of Los Angeles, Leopoldo Peña makes photographic works that center on themes of immigration and the environment. Pelotas Oaxaqueñas / Oaxacan Ball Games: Photographs by Leopoldo Peña features black-and-white images of traditional ball games played by Oaxacan expatriates throughout Southern and Central California. Peña’s photographs capture discrete moments—arms reaching toward the ball; pauses in action as players gather their strength; families and friends watching the game from the sidelines—and in so doing document how the game creates and reinforces communal ties.
