Come join us for a drink with this lady:

We’ve been trying to convince you to come to CREEC’s Inaugural Event with promises of listening to civil rights lawyers talk about civil rights.  That’s how we get our thrills.  But we thought some of you might prefer to hang out with this lady — and many other photos in the current exhibition at Museo de las Americas, the amazing venue for next week’s CREEC event.

From the Museo’s website:

Museo de las Americas in collaboration with The Mexican Cultural Center & Mexican Consulate of Denver announce the Fall exhibit, EL Brindis Remixed. The exhibit features photography from the 19th & 20th century taking a lighthearted . . . look at drinking within the Mexican Culture.

Featured artists include: Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Agustín Víctor Casasola, Gabriela Iturbide, Juan Rulfo, Gabriel Figueroa, Mariana Yampolsky and several other creatives who comprised Frida & Diego’s personal inner circle.

In 2000 the exhibit was on display in Paris for the Millennium Celebration and will be featured for the final time in the United States at Museo this Fall.

We are very lucky to be able to use this beautiful space — right in the middle of Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District.  Come for the art, stay for the civil rights!   Or vice versa!

I think she’ll be there, too.
