The Big Give!
May 3, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us in raising money to support The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center! This year, we are highlighting the GCAC’s work in Arts Education. Donations will go towards supporting affordable classes and scholarships, as well as subsidizing costs such as instructor salaries. The Guadalupe aims to make the arts accessible to all, and for that, we really need the support of our community. In addition, we will be coordinating events throughout the day including a Food Truck Lunch with live entertainment in the park next to the Guadalupanita, gallery tours of the current exhibition in the afternoon, and a Bards & Brew Happy Hour featuring San Antonio literary activists & first two poets laureate of our beloved city, Carmen Tafolla and Laurie Ann Guerrero. We will be offering local craft beers, and live performances from the Guadalupe’s MariachiAcademy. Our Big Give event is open to all by donation!
