Ah, the day that so many love—when night and day are about equal length—the Spring Equinox.
Before the Spring Equinox, Earth’s axis is tilting neither away nor towards the sun, but after wards, to the relief and joy of many, our hours of daylight extend.
The Spring Equinox will be celebrated at Avenue 50 Studio this Wednesday, March 20th, with the spoken word, with video, and with music, featuring artists Francisco Letelier, Chusien Chang, Karl Jean-Guerly Petion, and photographer Kevin Hass.
Letelier, originally from Chile, has recently completed an indoor mural called “Reflecting the Light” for Whole Foods Market in Venice, California and his “The Sun” and “The Moon” tile murals adorn the Westlake/MacArthur Park Metro Station. He has also completed murals in Washington D.C., New York, Nicaragua, and Oregon. “Letelier’s work is influenced by his upbringing as a Chilean exile, and by the 1975 assassination of his father, Orlando Letelier, former Chilean Ambassador to the United States, along with an astute awareness of political repression.” (Metro.net)
