dA CENTER FOR THE ARTS Presents:
A Benefit for the Preservation of a Legacy
The dA CENTER FOR THE ARTS is honored to host a benefit art exhibition for one of the most influential figures in the Chicano Art movement, Gilbert "Magu" Luján. We cordially invite you to attend a special preview reception on Friday August 12, 2011 at 7:00-9:00 p.m. to get early access to some of Magu's never before shown original artworks. Enjoy wine and hors d'oeuvres to the mellow music of Maria Elena Gaitan aka "Chola con Cello."
The exhibition will open to the public during Pomona's Second Saturday Art Walk on August 13. Items will be offered at many price levels, so everyone can "take home a Magu." Please join us in celebrating and preserving his legacy.
All proceeds from the events will go to support the preservation of Gilbert "Magu" Luján's artistic legacy. Any donations toward the benefit exhibition are tax deductible through the dA CENTER FOR THE ARTS, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
