In the context of the "MXLA2017" celebrations, more than 20 cultural, academic, community and business activities will be offered to the public for free.
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Music, photography, folk sculptures known as alebrijes, movies and soccer will be just some of the free events on display in different corners of Los Angeles County to celebrate the diversity, cultural richness and history of the fascinating CDMX in September. As part of the program of activities for "2017: Año de México en Los Ángeles (MXLA2017 – 2017 – The Year of Mexico in Los Angeles)," organized by the Secretary of Foreign Relations in coordination with the Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles, September has been designated as the month of Mexico City: "CDMX in Los Angeles."
With the goal of celebrating the strong and solid historic and cultural ties that bind Mexico and Los Angeles, the Consulate General of Mexico and the Office of the Mayor of Los Angeles declared 2017 the year of Mexico in Los Angeles, or "MXLA2017." With an extensive program of activities and projects, 10 Mexican states have been featured throughout the year, beginning with Baja California in March, Sonora in April, Puebla in May, Guanajuato in June, Jalisco in July, Oaxaca in August, Mexico City in September, and Colima, Michoacán, Durango, Morelos, and Querétaro over the course of the celebration.
The "CDMX in Los Angeles" celebration presents an extraordinary opportunity to showcase the strengths of CDMX as a global city and beacon of hospitality. With a splendid culture open to the whole world, CDMX is a promoter of major opportunities and events, the epicenter of Latin America's creative industries and a fount of incomparable tourist experiences.
The official ceremony for the inauguration of "CDMX in Los Angeles" will be held on Friday, September 8, at 9:30 a.m. in Los Angeles City Hall, and will feature the presence of Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti, and the Head of Government for Mexico City, Miguel Ángel Mancera.
"MXLA2017" accompanies the Getty initiative, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, an ambitious and far-reaching exploration of Latin American and Latino art in a dialogue with Los Angeles to project the existing connection between the creation of Latin American and Angelino artists, emphasizing the development of creators and the promulgation of their roots, as reflected in their pieces.
