Although its a challenge, at times it is necessary to marathon some art. Two weekends ago stars aligned and I had a three day marathon of amazing art events.
The first stop on my art filled weekend is the closing reception for Border Cantos - Richard Misrach and Guillermo Galindo at the San Jose Museum of Art. I was fortunate enough to see Guillermo perform earlier this summer, in a far more intimate setting I might add, because the performance for the closing of the show was well attended. Standing room only!
Friday night my girl friends and I found ourselves in the Saratoga Mountains at the Montalvo Arts Center for their #5hourscuplturepopup. It was a night of food trucks, live music, art performances and installation art through out the grounds.
I cannot say it enough, but when ever I come out for one of their events, I have a blast. A night filled with interactive art, performance from spoken word to dance, musical performances all night and amazing food and drinks.
I am still swaying my hips to some of the amazing musical performances from that night. And in particular the closers for the evening, Zakiya Harris and Elephantine.

But every year something comes up!! Thanks twitter, for letting me feel like I was there.
Every now and then I will post or share a critique of gender ideologies. And it seems to never fail; share something that critiques masculinity and sure enough men come to argue.
1. It's not about masculinity.
2. It's not about masculinity.
3. I am secure with my masculinity.
In a conversation with a friend about the interaction, she reminded me of a wonderful thing and possibly the best response to these types of interactions.
I love love love this project! As an apologetic consumer of everything pop culture I enjoy a project where someone who works from the industry takes a critical look at the industry.
