Space To Dream In L.A.

(Mama's Hot Tamales)

A person can't have much vision for their own life unless they have space and time to dream. Some people have access to those things more than others. I've noticed in both L.A. neighborhoods of Pico Union and MacArthur Park those two resources are a luxury that almost no one has. God has provided a few places for us to have art shows on a monthly or regular basis. One of those places is Mama's Hot Tamales on 7th Street in MacArthur Park. My friend Evelin and I art trying to offer this space to the artists of our neighborhoods. We are encouraging each-other to direct our energy in a positive and empowering way.

We have a show called Kaleidoscope Hearts featuring a diverse group of artists with many different styles. This show will be up for the whole month of August at Mama's Hot Tamales. For the month of September we are trying to encourage the graffiti artists in the neighborhood to put their canvases up. If you are a graff artist in L.A. please get at me in the comments section.

Lived in L.S. for almost 30 years, and really miss it.

Nice blog work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
