Art walk after party focused on cultural awareness
Pomona- On Saturday, February 11th, 2012 at nine o’clock p.m., local event organization “Re:Fresh” will be hosting the second annual Brazilian Carnival Celebration in conjunction with Beats of All-Nations to take place at DBA256 Winebar and Gallery in downtown Pomona, as an installment of Metro Pomona’s monthly art walk. The celebration will feature Tempo Bom, a live batucada procussion ensemble, Julie Simon’s Afro-Samba showcase of “TROPICALEIZA,” authentic Brazilian Samba dancers, as well as the resident Re:Fresh DJ roster. At 10:30 p.m. the group including the drummers and dancers will form a small drum rally, traditionally called a “bloco” on the southwest corner of Thomas and Third st. After a few minutes they will march west on Third st. towards Main St. where they will enter the ongoing celebration inside of DBA256. From there the celebration will continue on until early a.m. hours. We (Re:Fresh) have been putting on events like this at every art walk for the last several years in hopes to bring a sense of cultural traditions to this community that our not always offered. It is our way of ‘pitching in,’ we are all from this area and artistically we have been and still are influenced by what happens here in Pomona.”
The Pomona art walk is every second and fourth Saturday from 3 p.m.-9 p.m. The “Re:Fresh” art walk after party is from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. at DBA256 Winebar and Lounge, 256 s. Main St. Pomona 91766. This event is free and open to the public at least 21 years of age.
