Sergott Contemporary Art Alliance presents “Barrio AllStarz Norte”
SAN DIEGO, CA – Last month, Guillermo Valenzuela and Chris Martino hosted a lively night of contemporary art, music, tacos, and beer in south central San Diego, near Chicano Park. From May 11th to June 22nd, Sergott Contemporary Art will team with Valenzuela and Martino for Barrio AllStarz Norte, which aims to introduce North County to the Barrio Logan arts district where the original event was held. This exhibition will present dozens of Barrio Logan artists in conjunction with local eateries like Taco Company Salud! and Mexican craft beer by Border X Brewing. A traditional Mexican folk dance performance by the Ballet Folklorico La Fiesta del Pueblo will take place at 8:00pm with music by Malamaña featuring Juanito and Fredi to follow throughout the night.
Barrio Logan is a neighborhood in San Diego with a rich history, a vigorous culture, and a resilient community. With the influx of refugees from the Mexican Revolution around 1910, the formerly-named “Logan Heights” quickly transformed into a dynamic scene for political activism and the visual arts, the legacy of which thrives into the present day. Barrio Logan is also home to Chicano Park, an official historic site and Cultural Resource in San Diego where annual themed celebrations boast Mexican and Aztec Indigenous performances among many others.
Barrio AllStarz Norte, curated by Chris Martino and Guillermo Valenzuela, will open on May 11th at Sergott Contemporary Art Alliance in Rancho Santa Fe, California. This exhibition is a unique chance to view works by artists residing in Barrio Logan. The opening night event will be held from 7-10:30pm and will be sponsored by SCAA.
