The Alianza Cultural Latinoamericana is a community of artists and art lovers who promote Latin American cultural expressions in Austin. The organization seeks to promote Latin American art forms to the Hispanic community in the city and to spread this knowledge with new generations through initiatives like Café Con Letras, their monthly showcase that brings together artists from different parts of Latin America who want to promote their art in this alternative space.
This month’s Café Con Letras is a special one. To kick off their fourth year, the organization will feature a little bit of everything that makes them unique. Aside from being the only completely Spanish event in the city, the organization will feature a wide variety of art forms to be enjoyed by all ages. Expect to see work from poets, musicians, painters and actors. As a special treat for children, marionette manipulators will showcase their talents as well.
Café Con Letras will take place from 7-10 p.m. today at Ruta Maya located at 3601 S. Congress Ave. Admission is $5 and free for children under 18. For more information call (512) 767-8135.
