I’m excited to announce a creative work that is straight from the heart!!! It is my great pleasure to introduce Luz: a flamenco project honoring mothers who live and work as artists. Luz has already been partly funded by Tucson Pima Arts Council and Arizona Commission on the Arts and with your contribution you will help take this flamenco show on tour to CA, AZ, and NM! In the next few weeks, I’ll be posting more on my Facebook page about the birth and development of this work and what has inspired the message of Luz. Click on the Hatchfund link to watch a quick video about the project. Please contribute and make Luz happen in 2016!!! http://www.hatchfund.
