Global Arts Showcase: Mes de la Cultura

Celebrating Mexican music, dance, and culture!

Global Arts Showcase, a collaboration between Arizona Public Media and the Pima County Public Library, brings people together in celebration of the diverse communities, cultures, and people that make Southern Arizona special.

On September 22, Arizona Public Media and the Pima County Public Library presented a virtual celebration of the rich Mexican-American and Latinx cultural heritage of Southern Arizona. Global Arts Showcase: Mes de la Cultura featured local Mexican-American and LatinX art, music, and dance with performances by Mariachi Estrellas de Tucson, Mariachi Los Changuitos Feos, and Ballet Folklórico Tapatío.

Audiences enjoyed an exclusive preview of the Arizona Illustrated story about Carlos Valenzuela, a Chicano tile artist, and his work across Tucson’s south side; and an inside look at the Pima County Public Library’s Frank De La Cruz Borderlands collection. At the end of the show, performers answered questions from the audience during an interactive Q&A.

Please enjoy this recording of the event!
