WKND UPDATE AUG 1-4 :: Catzlán + RYE RYE + SAV NOIR +++


First and most importantly, the venerable Galeria de la Raza is currently showing very crucial POLITI-KITTY ART. Fans of the “Catzlán” series of prints and posters can thank Rio Yañez, master of contemporary Mission District 3D art, whose father Rene happens to have been the Galeria’s original artistic director when the space opened in the Mission back in 1970. You know, before it introduced San Francisco to Dia de los Muertos, became a center of Chicano culture, etc.

Rio’s artistic statement:

Catzlán is a series of artworks taking equal inspiration from the pedagogy of Chicano activism and cute kittens. Catzlán pays tribute to the work of such forefathers as Reies Tijerina, Toonces the Driving Cat, Ceiling Cat, Gloria Anzaldua, and Heathcliff.

Also, super-famous street artist JR is in town promoting immigration reform, which we were down for until we questioned the need for his incredibly well funded project to completely cover the community wheatpaste wall on Valencia.
