The Common Ground – Art.

In the new Purple world understanding which cultural heartstrings to cultivate is critical to success and even more critical as we reach across cultural lines to appreciate each other. The Alliance of Latinos and Jews is an organization whose mission is to build new and enhance existing relations between the Jewish and Latino communities by focusing on issues of common concern:  business and  economic development, policy/civic, and social and cultural affairs.  I had the distinct pleasure of attending their event, hosted by the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. As part of the event, we had the opportunity to enjoy an the exhibit – Rio De Palabras by Mexican artist, Blanca Rivera Rio.  Her collection of lithographs were impacted by her experience with African culture, she uses a combination of images and words to convey her vision of the world and illusion of the future.  She incorporates elements of African culture assimilating them in her vision. You can still see the exhit at (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) art gallery.  

Think. See. Be Purple.
