Play Loteria for prizes!
We  are asking folks to bring in teacher donations to play Loteria. There  are a ton of supply drives for the students but seeing how Oakland has  treated its teachers, they need some love too! Get creative! Not only do  teachers need classroom supplies (pens, hand tissues, pencils, glue  sticks, books, erasers, dry erase markers, const paper, copy paper, hand  sanitizer ...) but we also need stuff for our teachers mental health  (candles, coffee, candy, wine, beer, essential oils, gas cards or any  gift cards!)

Meet us in Solano Alley! We will have the artists  and tacos in Solano Alley and calling Loteria in the gallery at Amor  Eterno Arte!

The Culture of Star Wars

art exhibition curated by Amy George Cortez and Chamuco Cortez 

Star Wars has developed into a powerful element of our cultural identity. Constantly weighing the light and the dark, republic vs the empire, it mimics our struggles and our politics. In every culture, the Hero of 1,000 faces appears in its oral history. A hero goes on a life changing adventure to oppose strange forces. In this unusual world, the hero faces their opposition and is victorious! Returning home, they share the power and the knowledge they have gained from this fantastic adventure with their community.

Growing up in Oakland, you know what it’s like to grow up in Tattooine. Obi Wan Kenobi said Mos Eisley was a "Retched hive of scum and villainy" much like the media portrays the Oakland we grew up in. What are the parallels you find in your own life in Star Wars? 

We asked 22 artists to explore their own culture of Star Wars and how the films have influenced their creativity. 

Closing reception Sat June 30th 6pm-10pm
