Perdormance by Linda EPO
Born in Queens, NYC, Linda EPO's voice draws from the melting pot she was born in, blending the powerful yet coy vocals found in Mexican ranchera music with the jazz and blues influences she grew up with in New York City. She has toured with the Grammy-nominated Heritage Blues Orchestra in Europe, performed throughout Mexico as an integral member of the Mexican-roots collective Nixtaband, and can be found setting stages in NYC ablaze, performing an eclectic soundscape grounded in jazz, funk, R&B, Caribbean, and Latin music. Having a reputation for leaving everything on stage when she performs, Linda is honest with her voice and has an unapologetic presence. Each note she sings is filled with melancholy passion intertwined with natural melodic beauty, and every performance is filled with earnest passion and depth.
About the Workshops
Mini Pot Painting
In this workshop, Aurelio del Muro will lead participants in decorating mini terracotta flowerpots on a white background. This fun, hands-on, creative activity is intended for children and adults. After, participants who painted a pot will receive a plant (until supplies last).
The butterfly is a universal symbol of femininity, resilience, and migration. In this workshop, Andrea Arroyo will lead participants to create a butterfly artwork using collage and mixed media inspired by history and the diverse, vibrant community.
Art supplies will be provided.
About the Hispanic Society Museum and Library
The Hispanic Society of America was founded in 1904 by Archer Milton Huntington (1870-1955) to establish a free, public museum and reference library to study the art and culture of Spain, Portugal, Latin America, and the Philippines. The collections of the Hispanic Society are unparalleled in their scope and quality outside of Spain, addressing nearly every aspect of culture in Spain, as well as a large part of Portugal and Latin America, into the 20th century.
