The Grand Opening is a Hot Pick! -MC Weekly
Thank you, Monterey County Weekly for making Palenke Arts’ Grand Opening a Hot Pick!
“Last year, Palenke Arts was just a vision trying to manifest itself into a real venue where youth could learn about all sorts of performance art. And after festivals, hard work and donations, the Palenke Arts Center is open for learning. The center is partnering with a lot of already familiar programs, like the Arts Council for Monterey County and the Monterey Jazz Festival and others, but with an emphasis on multicultural arts like Latin jazz, mariachi, Afro-Cuban and Arabic drumming technique and hip-hop dance. And if the past is any indicator of what’s to come, future Palenke-goers will revel in the creative freedom and self-discovery. [MA]” (Monterey County Weekly, Feb. 16, 2017)
