The Muzeo was set up to be very kid friendly. It took The Phi a few mintues to get use to all the sounds and the dim lighting. ( I blame the dim lighting for Pattys like mix up!) But once she did, she had a blast pushing buttons, turning cranks and running around like she owned the place.
An showcase of Chicano books. I think between Patty and myself we had them all!
A diner set up with juke boxes filled with all the lowrider oldies!
I loved these big brightly painted blocks. I mean a skull and Frida. Perfect!
My crew heading out for a lunch break.
When we got back they had a Ballet Flokorico dance group perform. The kids ages ranged from 3-20 something. Gorgeous dresses. We then headed into the art gallery to wander around and enjoy the Chicano Art and Soul exhibit. Cheech Marin, (yes of Cheech and Chong) fame has one of the best collections of Chicano art. A lot of beautiful, powerful, political, and even funny pieces. There was a lot of George Yepes (Cari remember him!) and Leo Limon were some of my favorites!
Too much excitment. She wore herself out.
It was a wonderful, wonderful day.
