In El Pueblo’s early days, a priest would bless livestock for health and productivity, benefiting the entire community. The practice continued when Olvera Street opened in 1930, and family pets joined the farm animals. Whether they walk, crawl, slither or fly, all animals (and people!) are welcome to receive a blessing from Archbishop Jose Gomez. Blessing from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m

‘Loitering is delightful’ at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery

Loitering is traditionally considered the preserve of delinquents, teenagers, and miscreants. Generally speaking, those up to no good.   Of course, some are freer to dillydally than others. As Ross Gay reminds us in his incisive essay Loitering Is Delightful (which the author has kindly permitted us to use here), “the darker your skin, the more likely you are to be “loitering.” As Gay goes on to point out, for people of color, any public display of “non-productive delight” – from loitering…

Indian Country: The Art of David Bradley Opens to the Public

For the past three decades, David Bradley (Minnesota Chippewa, born 1954) has been a recognized voice from Indian Country, confronting through his art questions of identity, self-determination, and self-representation, as well as definitions of “traditional” Indian art. Drawing influence from diverse sources such as Santa Fe–style painting of the 1930s–40s, Renaissance art, pop culture, advertising, and film, Bradley’s work is at once serious and fun, historical and contemporary.
