The LCC is thrilled to present the regional premiere of the groundbreaking play ¡Gaytino!, written and performed by Dan Guerrero. Touching, hilarious and absolutely one-of-a-kind, Dan Guerrero brings his two disparate worlds together in one riveting show.
Described by the Washington Post as a “disarming twist on the triumph-of-the-human-spirit theme,” this one-man play takes us through decades of Chicano history and the gay experience from a unique and personal perspective. From Mariachi to Merman, Sondheim to César Chávez, this remarkable life journey takes the audience from East L.A. in the 1950s to New York’s Great White Way in the 1960s and 1970s, and back to Hollywood. A father/son relationship and a treasured boyhood friendship drive this 75-minute, autobiographical solo play with music.

The fluttering red ribbons atop the 28-foot tall poles of an authentic tipi call for a gathering at the LCC Plaza! Awe and anticipations are reflected in faces as they take in the majestic beauty of smoke flaps spreading like wings, and the graceful conical shape of the tipi. Once seated inside this canvas cocoon, the ancient traditions of storytelling begin. Visitors listen to entertaining and informative tales from diverse cultures. Whether age 3 or 103 there are tipi stories to tell and to learn from and enjoy

*IN THE GALLERIES: René Alvarado, Memories from El Manantial & ¡Lotería!
NOW through AUGUST 20, 2011
If you missed the opening last month, don’t let another day go by without checking out these two great shows!
Our annual Maestros Tejanos exhibition featuring the work of painter René Alvarado in Memories from El Manantial. Alvarado is a consummate painter and storyteller. His large, colorful paintings are layered with multiple details and a highly personal iconography that draws upon the rich cultural heritage of his native Mexico and his adopted West Texas home of San Angelo. Blogger Kent Boyer described it “as a colorful powerhouse of a show.”
In a suite of 20 amazing prints, Michoacán artist Guadalupe Anaya reinvents the traditional images of the loteria cards (the heart, the hand, the frog, the spider, the siren…). Anaya uses various printmaking techniques – etching, aquatint, drypoint and chine collé – to create highly original interpretations of the traditional images.

Please note that from June 6-July 1, the LCC daytime hours will change due to our summer art camp.
