Summer time is a special time for everyone. At Casa Azul, we offer exciting summer programming for all. Events range from concerts to art exhibits complimented with workshops and community discussions to explore the themes and topics in focus.
For the 2021 summer series Casa Azul of Greensboro partnered with the African American Atelier to present the series: DREAMERS. This was a collaboration exhibit with the Artivists: Rosalia Torres-Weiner, Cornelio Campos and activist Moises Serrano . This event highlighted how art can be a voice and advocate for social justice and create awareness on issues affecting the Latinx community.
Casa Azul and the African American Atelier joined forces during the summer of 2019 to present “Engraving Injustice”, in collaboration with General Consulate of Mexico in Raleigh. The exhibit featured Taller de Gráfica Popular works, part of an artistic movement in mid-20th Century Mexico. It was one of the most influential and progressive printmaking collectives of its time.
Community discussions held throughout the summer offered an opportunity to dialogue on the events and circumstances surrounding the artwork on display.
In the summer of 2017, Casa Azul explored cultural and individual identity through Latin Arts, while looking at the dynamic nature of Latino cultures and the tendency for cultural blending throughout time.
The word “In-Fusion” referred to today’s mix of cultures and how these interact to create rhythms, visual and performing arts.
It was a great summer!
