Dear AFT Guild Members,
As a benefit of your Guild membership, we have scheduled tours of Chicano Park with renown Chicano artist, Mario Torero. We will have the opportunity to tour the numerous murals and learn about the little-known history of the local Chicano movement of the early 1970s. Afterward, you are welcome to have lunch at Mariscos el Pulpo in Barrio Logan (be sure to bring dinero for lunch!).
Since there are only have 20 spaces available per tour, we are scheduling these on three different Saturdays: September 14th, September 28th, and October 5th. Tours are from 10:30am-11:30am. Each AFT Guild member can bring one guest (guests who are eligible for AFT Membership must be an AFT member to attend).
This is a unique opportunity to experience living art history, recall the Chicano civil rights movement, and understand how a culture uses visual narrative to assert and preserve its identity. Tickets are only $12.50 each and can be purchased here: https://aftchicanoparktour.brownpapertickets.com
Hope to see you there!
El sindicato hace la fuerza!
