All over the world, stories and folktales are told about certain bandits who stand for social justice. ‘Bold Caballeros Y Noble Bandidas’ runs until May 1st on weekdays and weekends (Closed Mondays). This exhibition focuses on the Latino experience and the interplay of fact and fantasy in the depiction of Latina and Latino “noble bandits.”
Sometimes fictional bandit heroes, such as Zorro, the Cisco Kid, and the Bandit Queen, fill a social and cultural need. These characters assume a vitality that often penetrates all of popular media, including film, art, costume, radio, television, and the commercial world of children’s products.
With art by the extraordinary George Yepes, Eduardo Gonzales and Hector Silva it must be something to see. For the Family there are Títeres Rebeldes (Rebellious Puppets) with performances highlighting tales made famous during the Mexican Revolution.
