10:00 AM Art Talk on Sor Juana Noted scholar Gregorio Luke will offer a fully illustrated presentation on the seminal historical figure Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.

"One of the major attractions of Art and Empire: The Golden Age of Spain is the portrait by Miguel Cabrera of Juana Inés de la Cruz, rarely seen outside of México. Sor Juana has been called the 'first feminist,' the first to defend women from the oppression of men. She is also the first in our hemisphere to defend women's right to knowledge. Gifted with intelligence, grace and beauty, she so passionately sought knowledge, that she asked her mother to dress her as a man so that she could attend the university, which at the time was closed to women. Sor Juana continued her studies independently and was so brilliant, that she caught the attention of the Viceroy. She went to live in the Royal Court of the New Spain and became a sensation for her knowledge and beauty. To pursue a literary career, she became a nun and went on to write numerous plays and exceptionally beautiful poems. Towards the end of her life, she affirmed, that God's greatest gift to humanity was free will, idea that angered the ecclesiastical hierarchy, who silenced her and forced her to relinquish her library. Sor Juana died in obscurity during the great plague in México City, but her work lives on as an inspiration to women and freedom lovers everywhere." - Gregorio Luke

6:00 PM Music: Changüí Majadero Playing Cuban roots music out of Los Angeles CA, Changüí Majadero is a blazing five-piece band that has honed a deeply informed and highly personal take on changüí, a surging Afro-Cuban musical tradition that took shape in the late 19th century on the eastern side of the island around Guantanamo. It's one of the foundational styles that gave birth to son, salsa and timba, and in the hands of Changüí Majadero the music feels as fresh and intoxicating as a stiff shot of rum. Founded by guitarist/vocalist Gabriel García, an expert on Cuban tres guitar, the band brings Cuba's rural countryside music to new ears! Having played in such disparate settings such as Lincoln Center, SF Jazz, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and even Dodger Stadium, the band released their self-titled debut recording in 2016 that encompasses compositions bristling with propulsive rhythms and evocative vocals — a celebrated release that All About Jazz called "joyous music, deserving greater recognition."

Join us at the Center for our new summer series: Hidden City Sounds! This brand new summer music series will fill the Lyric Court with music every Friday from June 7 to October 4! Enjoy a different genre of live music each week along with DJ's, food trucks, inflatables, and a cash bar. See the full schedule here.
