Get inside the heads of a group of top local Chicano artists who work in a variety of media at tonight's 7 Minutos slide jam, hosted by Westword favorite Jerry Vigil and featuring Al Cardenas, digital media professor Rafael Fajardo, muralist Emanuel Martinez, mixed-media artist Jerry De La Cruz and santero/scholar Jose Esquibel. Each artist will present a short slide presentation and discuss their work, as well of the work of their fellow panelists, at the periodic event hosted by the Museo de las Américas, 861 Santa Fe Drive.
7 Minutos begins tonight at 6 p.m. at the Museo. Different this evening, in the spirit of Denver Arts Week, is the two-for-one admission fee, which works out to be $2.50 per person for every pair attending -- a real pittance, all things considered.
