2:00 PM14:00

2nd Saturday Artwalk: Hispanic Heritage Celebration

In this lesson we will be creating a self-portrait in honor of El Maestro Emigdio Vasquez. We will study Proportion and Line using watercolors as our art medium.

Music: Manos de Fuego (drum specialty band) Emigdio Vasquez Jr.  (Son of renown Chicano Social Realism Master, Emigdio Vasquez http://www.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-me-emigdio-vasquez-20140815-story.html)

Art Vendors will be located throughout most areas of the mall.

Macy’s Court (4 vendors)

Food Court (4 vendors)

Center Corridor between Elevator (4 vendors) leading to the patio, and 2 vendors outside.

Art Exhibits: Emigdio Vasquez Tribute Rosemary Vasquez (also daughter of Emigdio Vasquez and wonderful visual artist.) I think that there is no better way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month than by Honoring Emigdio Vasques and having his successors as our guest artists.

This Chicano movement of art is more than relevant to Santa Ana as a city and community. I was a part of the event planning committee that hosted the Celebration of Emigdio’s life in 2013 when he was awarded the Maestro Award https://www.ocregister.com/2013/06/14/chicano-artist-to-receive-maestro-award-saturday/

Pumpkin Launch contestants use the principles of STEM to build trebuchet machines that send pumpkins high in the sky and towards targets that line the field. The team with the highest score wins the Pumpkin Launch trophy!

Cal State Fullerton’s athletic field is located at 800 N. State College Blvd, Fullerton, CA 92831.

The Room Screening at The Frida Cinema

to Aug 26

The Room Screening at The Frida Cinema

Bust out those plastic spoons!  Tommy Wiseau’s THE ROOM returns to The Frida Cinema every last Saturday of the month through 2018!  Tickets for our next screening – Saturday, August 25 at 11pm – are now available!

Tommy Wiseau’s peerless magnum opus finds the auteur who shaped a generation taking on the arts of acting, writing, casting, directing, editing and more. What’s even more remarkable: he’s mastered them all. In Wiseau’s The Room, Johnny is a big-time banker working in gorgeously shot San Francisco. His fiancé Lisa, seemingly a happy part of a successful relationship, has wandering eyes…for Tommy’s best friend Mark. Cinema has never witnessed such betrayal!! The Room is an intense, sensual thriller punctuated with brilliant musical contributions by Mladen Milicevic, Jarah Gibson, Clint Gamboa, Kitra Williams & Reflection.

Wiseau’s intricately knit web of sweet secrets and bitter lies interrogates the very form of drama itself, abandoning a slick and finished aesthetic to showcase his inventive and creative spirit. Especially notable is Wiseau’s masterful naturalistic acting. Join us and witness a master at work. This is truly unforgettable cinema.

Community Workshop (Taller Comunitario)

Community Workshop (Taller Comunitario)

Help us make the city more walkable, bikeable, and transit-friendly for all!

Santa Ana is a vibrant community dedicated to building a safe and welcoming environment to live in, work in and visit. Over the past 10 years, city leaders have evolved Santa Ana’s infrastructure with mixed-use spaces and improved pedestrian safety.

Travel Safe, Share the Space is a public education, awareness and behavioral change campaign that responds to the challenges of pedestrian and bicyclist safety by encouraging residents and visitors to watch out for each other. The campaign shows that every day, each one of us one may be a driver, public transit rider, bicyclist or pedestrian. The best way to keep every traveller safe is collective prevention.

We want to build a culture in Santa Ana where all road users watch out for each other, and continue to create an environment where bicycling and walking are increasingly considered as safe and healthy modes of transportation.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Together with community partners such as OTS, we will continue to improve the safety of Santa Ana’s streets. http://www.ots.ca.gov/
