Experience lively cultures, spirited music and robust flavors from around the globe without leaving Silicon Valley. With the launch of ArtWorlds, a new international art and music event series, Mountain View's Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA) offers the public a chance to immerse themselves in a range of creative traditions.
At the inaugural ArtWorlds event this Friday, CSMA celebrates the African American tradition through the paintings and mixed media work of artist Bryan Keith Thomas. The event also features a conversation with the artist, an African-inspired meal with South African wines, and a live performance by Stanford University student a cappella group Talisman, whose songs tell stories from around the world, particularly Africa and the African diaspora.
ArtWorlds takes place on Friday, Nov. 13, 6-8:30 p.m., at CSMA's Tateuchi Hall and Mohr Gallery, 230 San Antonio Circle, Mountain View. Admission is free. To learn more, go to arts4all.org or call 650-917-6800, ext. 305.
