Artists in Action: Art and Music Jam 

When: Sun., July 19, 12-4 p.m. 2009
Price: $5-$8
Favianna Rodriguez' fierce aesthetic and social justice bent make her one of the most exciting young artists currently working in Oakland. Straddling multiple traditions, she combines surrealist influences with a graffiti sensibility, creating works with the same political exigency as Emory Douglas' Black Panther art, or Shepard Fairey's Obama "Hope" graphic. Not to mention she's very good at explaining her raison d'etre. Rodriguez will appear at Oakland Museum of California (1000 Oak St.) on Sunday, July 19, along with muralists from EastSide Cultural Center's Visual Element program, and Dr. Loco's Rockin' Jalapeño Band. Set to coincide with the museum's African Presence in Mexico exhibit, their "art and music jam" will show the synergy between African and Latino communities in East Oakland. Noon-4 p.m., free with museum admission, $5-$8.
