Partnering with the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the International Visitors Council of Los Angeles (IVCLA) has announced that the 2011 Latin American Art Reception, welcoming international arts professionals from Bolivia and Colombia, will take place Monday, June 27 at the Museum of Latin American Art, 628 Alamitos Ave. in Long Beach.
The participants have been invited by the US embassies in their home countries to visit the United States to learn about arts and museum management. When opinion leaders from around the world visit the greater Los Angeles area as participants in the International Visitor Leadership program, they learn first-hand about the United States through the people they meet. These exchange programs help break down stereotypes so that the visitors will return home with a newfound knowledge about Americans.
The reception is open to the public, but reservations are required. The evening will include a private tour of the current exhibitions by curator Idurre Alonso, Latin culinary hors d’oeuvres, international wine and a special live dance performance by four-time world salsa champion Luis Eduardo Hernandez Cadena. Admission is $20 for IVCLA members and $25 for non-members.
