Two events dubbed "Sunday Arts Live" are set for Oct. 3 and Oct. 17. The events are organized by a group called Arts Action 21, which was initiated by members of the city's performing arts committee. In the group's honor, on Tuesday evening Mayor Ronit Bryant proclaimed October to be Arts and Humanities month.
This weekend's event will be held in the Center for Performing Arts at 500 Castro St. and begins at 1:30 p.m. It will feature films produced by the Freestyle Academy, dances by Grupo Folklorico Los Laureles (Mexican folkloric), Halau Na Wai Ola (Hawaiian) and Kaisahan (Filipino), and Oriki Theater (African drums).
A second event will take place Oct. 17 at the Community School of Music and Arts beginning at 2 p.m. Pianist and performing arts committee member Patricia Cheng will perform music from around the world.
