  • Galeria Xitana
The “alternative art hive bungalow” Galeria Xitana starts off CAM by introducing their first Xitana-in-Residence, Xelena González, in an interdisciplinary event they’re calling ‘Manifesto Xitana.’ González, a writer and dancer, is the author of the award-winning children’s book All Around Us, a meditation on circles both seen and unseen, from the curve of rainbows to the cycles of life.

The jam-packed evening will feature readings by González as well as Laurie Ann Guerrero and Rachel Christilles; art on display by Lee Ortiz, Katlyn Powell and Allison Maldonado; performance art by Andi Garcia-Linn, Rose Mary Kennedy and La Adelita Chingona; and music by Maya Guirao.
