STOOP: Nosotros, los de a pie
June 3, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm| Free
“Nosotros, los de a pie”
Homenajeando a los ciudadanos de a pie, a los ambulantes, los invisibles a la sociedad. Al inmigrante europeo, latino, africano, a ellos y ellas, los ciudadanos del mundo, sosten del planeta. ¡A quiene nadie les canta, ni dedica poemas, a quienes ningún pintor inspira!
“We, The Ordinary Ones”
We honor the ordinary citizens, the street people, those invisible to society. We honor the citizens of the world—from Europeans to Latinos to Africans—and the immigrants who sustain the planet. We honor those who do not inspire painters, and to whom no one dedicates a song or a poem.
Mission Stoop Fest (STOOP) is a civil society arts experiment that transpires on the front stoops of local residences, where traditional and contemporary artists perform and where local residents share stories and histories. The front stoop represents a literal threshold between the public and private spheres and is a historic site of spontaneous community interaction and exchange. Occurring during the day on the same bi-monthly dates as sister-project, Mission Arts & Performance Project (MAPP), STOOP will provide a program and a map of multiple neighborhood stoops where performance and storytelling will unfold simultaneously.
Alejandro Meza – collaborative drawing and poetry
Claudio Talavera-Ballon – live street painting of Mission residents
Naomi Quiñoez – bilingual poetry
