Arte Público Press Celebrates its 40th anniversary

Thursday, September 15, 2022

6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Bringing together outstanding artists from a variety of genres, the event will highlight the vibrant influence of Latin American and Latino cultures. The University of Houston’s Mariachi Puma will welcome attendees; other performers include the Brazilian dance and drum group, Sambabom; the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra, presenting its piece based on Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street, which was originally published by Arte Público; Solero Flamenco; and the Houston Grand Opera, doing its children’s production based on Jorge Argueta’s trilingual picture book, Agua, Agüita / Water, Little Water (Arte Público Press, 2017).

In addition, two children’s book awards will be given out that evening: the Salinas de Alba Award for Latino Children’s Literature and the Reyes-Olivas Award for Best First Book of Latino Children’s and Young Adult Literature. A post-performance party in the lobby—with food, drink, author signings and entertainment—will wrap up the event.

Sponsorships are available for $25,000; $10,000; $5,000; and $2,500. Individual tickets range from $250 - $25,000. More information is available here.
