If you’ve stepped into the vibrant ‘Mexican Geniuses’ experience at WEG Studios, you may have already gathered new artistic and cultural knowledge. Starting October 21st, the exhibit is taking it a step further, bringing new creative activities to attendees — whether they’ve already witnessed the ‘Mexican Geniuses’ spectacle or not. From dance classes, yoga, and a live guitarist to a paint & sip session, ‘Mexican Geniuses’ has activities lined up through the month of November!
October 21 – Dancing class
On October 21, learn how to dance Cumbia surrounded by the vibrant works of Frida and Diego. Originally brought by African slaves who made the journey to Colombia, Cumbia has been a staple in hispanic culture for decades. The authentic mixture of drums, flutes and maracas was later complemented by Mexico’s wind instruments in the 1940s. You’ll learn all this and more during this interactive Cumbia class at the heart of ‘Mexican Geniuses’. Just be sure to wear comfy clothes and bring a water bottle!
October 23 – Yoga class
Staying hydrated might also be beneficial for the yoga class coming on October 23. Regardless of how advanced you are, an instructor from Bluebird Sky Yoga will guide you through the meditative practice. Find your zen as you ground into the present moment, and witness Frida & Diego’s art take unexpected shapes around you. Be sure to bring your own mat!
November 4 – Live music
Listen to the sounds of authentic flamenco music wash over you at this musical experience. You’ll get to sip on decadent cocktails at the newly opened bar of the exhibit, as you take in Frida & Diego’s work all around you. This makes for an amazing happy hour with friends and family, where the photo-ops are endless! Really, what could be a better backdrop than the works of two talented artists animated through breathtaking 360-degree projections?
November 6 – Paint & sip
Ever wanted to become your own Frida or Diego? Channel the two artists at this fun paint & sip session, and take your artwork home! Or perhaps gift it to that special someone in your life.
