"Noche Buena"

Apart from being a worldwide synonym for Christmas Eve (and a damn fine Mexican beer), “Noche Buena” is a one-night visual art and spoken-word bonanza. A stacked and diverse art showcase and poetry reading, “Noche Buena” also functions as a grand opening of sorts for La Printería, a new community printmaking studio in the heart of the Westside. While the space may be new, the talent on display includes such established (and beloved) local artists as Cruz Ortiz, Nik Soupé, Daniela Riojas, Ernesto Olivio and Ana Fernandez, along with more than 40 others. Meanwhile, the spoken-word artists who’ll be holding down the mic include celebrated elders of the poetry community, including Jesse Jacinto Cardona, Anthony the Poet, Eddie Vega, Amanda Flores and Jason “Shaggy” Gossard. The event is the result of, at least in part, an exciting partnership between the Alamo Colleges' Westside Education and Training Center and the Westside Development Corporation. If you ask us, “Noche Buena” is a swell opportunity to experience a wide swath of San Anto’s best creative energy while also helping to launch a promising new venture.
