From San Diego to Santa Barbara, from Long Beach to Palm Springs, more than 60 cultural institutions all over Southern California are coming together for a major arts initiative opening this week. It’s called Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, and it explores Latin American and Latino art, in dialogue with the city of Los Angeles.

A dramatic visual component of the festival is set to be unveiled September 16 at the Central Library: “ Visualizing Language: Oaxaca in L.A.”, presented by the Library Foundation, and encompassing more than 70 events throughout the LA Public Library system. Amanda de la Garza Mata believes it is an especially powerful time for LA’s sizeable Oaxacan community to experience this colorful tribute to the power of their heritage.
