La Casa de La Raza presents “Noche de Cultura,” a talk with Favianna Rodriguez at 6 p.m. Friday, May 23 at La Casa de La Raza, 601 E. Montecito St.

Rodriguez is a celebrated printmaker and digital artist based in Oakland. Hailed as "visionary" and "ubiquitous," Rodriguez is renown for her vibrant posters dealing with issues such as war, immigration, globalization, and social movements.

An art exhibit will also be on display featuring the works of local women artists Veronica Valadez and Sagrario Rodriguez of Las Valentinas.

Valadez, art by Chicana artist Veronica Xochitl Valadez, is inspired by the art of her Mexican ancestral lineage and the concept of "yolteotl" the Nahuatl (Aztec) term meaning “divine heart.”

Rodriguez is a visual artist living and working in Santa Barbara. Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, she immigrated with her family to Salinas at a young age. Her interest and talents in art were evident throughout her childhood, yet it was during her enrollment at Hartnell Community College in Salinas that her artistic talents began to flourish.

Music by KCSB’s Radio Xicana along with food and wine will be provided. Please join us for this family friendly event.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
