TIERRA TO HEADLINE ANNUAL FUND RAISER
Every year, Arte Américas hosts a fund raiser and grand finale to the summer concert series. This year we are proud to announce that Los Angeles Chicano Soul band Tierra will headline our annual event. We've rented the famous "fifty-foot dancefloor" and will have several food trucks on-hand for those who want to have dinner prior to the concert. The event -- titled TOGETHER PARA ARTE -- supports art and cultural programming at the center through the winter months.
