Shoutout from Julio Salgado

Earlier this week, La Peña Cultural Center hosted Artivism: We are Americanan art exhibit that feature the work of Julio Salgado, an undocumented Immigrant that recently appeared on the cover to TIME Magazine. The event, which was hosted by Culture Strike and Define America, also featured journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, another immigrant who recently “came-out” with his undocumented status. We had a great night and a full house here at La Peña Cultural Center.

Here’s a video (from La Peña’s Green Room!) of Julio Salgado sends a shout out to Culture Strike and also gives his opinion on how art affect social change. Check it out!

 

Want to hear more from Jose Antonio Vargas? Check out this interview between Mr. Vargas and Cultrue Strike writer Jeff Chang (who visited La Peña a few weeks ago to hold a panel on Immigrant Rights), where Vargas discusses ‘a million new dreams’ that were created from the DREAM Act.
