A discussion with the audience led by film critic Juan Rodriguez Flores will follow the screenings

“I’m excited to have a conversation of a time marked by social and political transformation in Mexico that prompted its filmmakers to challenge the traditional national narrative of bucolic country life and of epic family melodrama which prevailed throughout the Era of Golden Cinema. The Mexican filmmakers of the 70s showed great courage, and ingenuity, in their portrayals of family dysfunction, political corruption, and passion not bound by conservative conventions.” Said CECUT’s Binational Director Dr. Juan Rodriguez Flores.”

"This exciting partnership shows how deeply the roots of Art truly has no borders" said Dr Ernest Garcia, Executive Director and namesake of the Garcia Center for the Arts

“I’m looking forward to a strong collaboration between the Garcia Center and the Consulate of Mexico in San Bernardino that will engage local residents in thought-provoking programming from Mexico.” Expressed Tammy Garcia Chiang, Consulate of Mexico in San Bernardino, Community Affairs Coordinator.

About Mexican Cinema of the 70s

"At the aftermath of the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, the 70's is one of the most important transitions in the history of cinema. It is when an opening is finally given to new filmmakers in Mexico. Before those years the industry was very closed and the productions were very large and with stories written with the sole purpose of taking the audience to the theaters. It was a very familiar formula of cinema with its exceptions. It is from the 70s that new directors arrive with the concern to present new stories, most of them influenced by European cinema. " - Ulises Castañeda,Crónica

YUCCA VALLEY, CA – The California Welcome Center (CWC) in Yucca Valley hosted a successful first CWC Art Festival on Saturday and Sunday, May 4 and 5. The event was staged in the large parking area behind the center and featured 30 artist booths, food vendors, and music.
A highlight of the festival was announcement of the winners of the festival’s CWC Art Contest, which was launched in January inviting California artists to compete for the opportunity to be a featured consigner in the welcome center gift shop for one year. Sixty entries of California-themed artwork were submitted by artists from the desert and other state regions for the inaugural contest. 
On Saturday morning, Executive Director Kathie Ammar and festival organizers announced the six winning artists who were chosen in various categories. 
John Henson of Yucca Valley won for mixed media, Mitch Miller of Joshua Tree for photography, Jayne Schelden of Yucca Valley for painting, and Vince “Paperscaper” Calanoc of Glendale for Assemblage. Two winners were selected for jewelry, Louis Hernandez of Joshua Tree and Susan Priest of Running Springs. The winning artwork is now on display at the welcome center.

Saint John’s Episcopal Church is sponsoring a Community Film Project to highlight the uplifting and positive efforts of the local San Bernardino community to support relationships in their neighborhoods. Through generosity, beauty, and grace, the films to be produced as a part of this project will tell the stories of the people who are living and working together to make our communities stronger, together.


Selected artist(s) will be required to work directly in the selected communities and facilitate storytelling and filmmaking workshops to co-create storylines for the films to be produced.  Three short films (3 minutes each) will be produced and screened at a community event, hosted at St. John’s Church at the completion of the project in September 2019.


Deadline to Apply is April 29, 2019

The Yucaipa Performing Arts Center (YPAC) is a multi-use venue in the heart of Historic Uptown Yucaipa which is located at the base of the San Bernardino National Forest. The City of Yucaipa completed construction of the building in 2019, providing a space for all types of performing arts including concerts, dance, community theater, galas, and major events. The 16,000 sq. ft. facility includes a flexible theater with retractable seating, a black box stage, classroom spaces, and an outdoor stage facing the new 14,000 sq. ft. Uptown Park. The City hosts a number of festivals in the Uptown district throughout the year, all of which incorporate live music, and aim to promote community engagement through the arts.

California is The State of the Arts and should be known as the Leading State of Creativity.

Starting in 2019, April will officially be Arts, Culture and Creativity Month in the state of California.

Check the attic, the closet and the garage for gently-used wall art pieces and donate them to the Attic Art Sale to help raise funds for art education in Redlands. Sponsored by the Redlands Festival of Arts (RFA) and the Redlands Art Association (RAA), the Attic Art Sale is a two-day art event with over 300 pieces of art that might typically be purchased in a gallery, but at bargain prices that could yield some lost treasures.

The sale opens Friday, March 1, with a $25 per person cocktail party preview sale, 5:30 to 8:00 pm, at The Museum of Redlands (MOR), 700 Brookside Ave.  The collection opens to the public on Saturday, March 2, from 8 am to 3 pm.

Event organizers are seeking donations of wall art, which can be dropped off until Thursday, February 28 at the offices of Lois Lauer Century 21 Realty, 1998 Orange Tree Lane, from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday thru Friday, and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.   

Art donors with questions should call Shirley Harry: 909-214-7179 or email her: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  For general information or to purchase preview sale tickets, call the RAA at (909) 792-8435.

Shirley Harry, Event Chair, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity to edit your wall art collection and share art that you’ve enjoyed, but no longer have a place to display.  Best of all, you’ll be helping us raise badly needed funds for arts education programs.”

People often call the RAA and the RFA to ask what they can do with inherited artwork or pieces that they’ve purchased and no longer want.  Unfortunately, Harry says that it’s harder to sell art on the secondary market than one might think.

This fun event offers art lovers an opportunity to donate their artwork to a local charitable organization for a potential tax deduction. Art donors will fill out a donation form listing the artwork and its value, but will need to consult a tax professional to comply with IRS rules.
