El Jardín del Arte, El Ganzo, La Casa de la Cultura, Instituto Sudcaliforniano de Cultura, El teatro del Pueblo, la música en vivo y otras hierbas… The evolution of art through time and space expresses an emotional story of human transformation. Art speaks of how we relate to each other, the Self, and the Universe. Art is the voice of freedom; a freedom sometimes held captive by the ideologies about what art is. Art scholars and art entrepreneurs understand tradition and honour, a lineage of technique and method, giving deep analysis to each work before they announce it as art. The curation of art is a noble and ancient profession, one respected by collectors and historians, museums and art galleries. Art can be a business of great wealth. Dad al César lo que es del César, y a Dios lo que es de Dios. The truth is that there is an artist in each one of us, and the need to express and share with others what we create is alive in all of us. Without the intention to ignore what the ‘experts’ value as artistic, people keep creating in spite of it. And why not? Even if grandiosity and transcendence in the art world seems to require a walk into the wild side of madness, art still remains the voice of freedom. And freedom is the art of living in peace. El jardín de Arte in downtown San José gives life to our beautiful zócalo. Artists and artisans, musicians and dancers, makers of foodies and goodies, family and friends all gather as many generations of Mexicans have gathered in plazas throughout centuries, because art in the zócalo is a Mexican tradition. You will enjoy it. Patron of the arts El Ganzo has a unique artist lineup. Ciler, October 4 – 11; Diana y Mariana Garcia, November 11 – 16; Jenaro de Rosenzwieg, November 5 – 11; Lourdes Villagomez, November 5 – 11 – Edgar Muñóz, November 5 – 11; Stormtroopers, December 11 – 14; Jenaro de Rosenzwieg, December 11 – 14; Saner, December 11 – 20; and Desmon Mason. La Casa de La Cultura in historic downtown is a center for the arts. Through ballet, contemporary dance, music, paint, reading, theater and martial arts, they cultivate peace and higher education in our community. El Instituto Sudcaliforniano de Cultura  presents a monthly Art program that includes theater, music, dance, film, book readings, exhibits, radio, plus unique events to present independent artists, such as our Youth Orchestra. El teatro del pueblo keeps alive the tradition of outdoor entertainment. There is a beautiful stage by the kiosk at the zócalo, if anything artistic is presented by the town, it will usually happen here. Don’t miss Día de los Muertos festivities. Música en vivo y otras hierbas. Mexico, like the rest of the world, is a musical country. We love the encounter of the bohemian spirit, usually accompanied by food and drinks, in an enchanted space that reminds us we are friends to each other. After a day of good work, it is the Mexican way to take rest, and sing a song. El arte es vida. Being mindful of what we create, we create Los Cabos. Smiles. *]]>
