On Sunday, October 2, 2011 LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes hosted the first installment of "Tardeada LA Plaza" (Afternoons at LA Plaza). We co-presented with Amigos de Siqueriros and was honored to host renowned scholar and historian Dr. Irene Herner Reiss. There was also exciting free hands-on art workshops in the garden for families and children.

Author of the recently published Siqueriros: From Paradise to Utopia, Dr. Herner Reiss is an expert on the life and work of Mexican muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros. His 1932 work, America Tropical, whitewashed in 1938 and the center of a dedicated conservation project since the late 1980s, is the subject of a new interpretative center set to open down the street from LA Plaza next year. Dr. Reiss led a conversation titled: "Why Rescue America Tropical? A Los Angeles archaeological site of the 20th century." She was joined by writer, musician, and teacher Ruben Martinez.
