Summer is soon upon us. And with it will come more arte, cultura y comunidad celebrated, honored and shared in the signature Brooklyn & Boyle free-to-the-public, finger-on-the-pulse exchange of art and ideas that stems from a powerful and long-standing historic tradition of discussion and creative dialogue between stakeholders, artistas, artesanxs, barrio advocates, residents, as well as the organizations and institutions that reflect the spectrum of their concerns and issues.
We give thanks to the many who make up a wide-ranging community of muralists, musicians, playwrights, poets and grass roots organizers, advocates and activists working to make, to build, to inspire, sharing experiences and expression on paper, canvas, on walls, on the stage, on the mic, on the street and online with line, color, rhyme, conviction and a kaleidoscope of voices.
The upcoming June 2016 issue of Brooklyn & Boyle features another glimpse at a half-century groundswell of art and culture through artist profiles, reviews, interviews and opinions on the most relevant issues facing long-time neighbors, home-grown artists, small businesses and community-based organizations with deep roots in the neighborhoods that comprise what we like to call the Greater East Side.
Join Brooklyn & Boyle this month for a conversation between El Art Pocho and Clement Hanami, a Japanese-American artist raised next door to Belvedere Park and a former Los Illegals roadie. Read about how iconic East Los punk legends Los Illegals, still powered by ASCO co-founder WIllie Herrón and bass player-composer Jesse Velo, rocked this year's Lummis Day Fest at Highland Park's Southwest Museum.
And in case you were unable to swing by Self Help Graphics & Art for the "43: From Ayotzinapa to Ferguson" exhibition, check out our insider recap of a riveting multimedia art exhibition that underscored a parallel between police violence that has led to the #blacklivesmatter movement and similar police and state violence that resulted in the disappearance of 43 students at a rural college in Mexico not so long ago.
