Arts Council Hosts “Art of People & Stories/Gente y Cuentos”
Join the Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) on Wednesday, October 26 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. for “Art of People & Stories/Gente y Cuentos.” From collecting art to tasting wine, the ART OF series aims to introduce attendees to the endless creativity and innovation in the community. Created by locals, for locals, these all-inclusive experiences require no supplies or commitment. Just bring your friends and the ACP will do the rest.
Inspired by ACP’s exhibition of Mexican contemporary artist Karima Muyaes, teens through adults are invited to a read aloud of one of Mexican author Angeles Mastretta’s short stories from her collection Women with Big Eyes. Take part in lively directed discussions (available in both English and Spanish) following the reading with professional People & Stories/Gente y Cuentos coordinators exploring the literary elements of the text alongside participants’ personal narratives. Learn more about People & Stories/Gente y Cuentos, a local nonprofit “Connecting Lives to Literature One Short Story at a Time” for 50 years. Mexican refreshments will follow the event, which have been donated by La Lupita’s Groceries.
