Artist and guest curator Xavier Montes is marking the 25th year of his De Colores Art Show with an invitational exhibit entitled Sanctuary/Santuario. Featuring art by over 30 esteemed artists, the show will honor the many men, women and families who have risked their lives crossing the border - for some many borders - in order to seek sanctuary in the United States. The premiere party on Saturday, September 15, 2018, will feature poetry readings, Folklórico dancers, and music by Cali-Mex band Los Fabulocos, as well as Xavier Montes and his De Colores music students. Admission to the premiere party is $4.00 for adults, $3.00 for seniors, and free for students and museum members.
