FAU to Present Concert of Andean Music with Kuyayky
BOCA RATON, FL (September 23, 2008) – The University Galleries in the School of the Arts in Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters presents a concert with Kuyayky, a group that plays traditional Andean music as a way to present the cultural history of the Andean peoples. The group was formed in Peru during the 1970s and transplanted to Miami in the 1990s. The concert will take place on Saturday, October 4 at 8 p.m. in the University Theater on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades Road. Admission is free.
The concert takes place during the stay of the exhibition Of Rage and Redemption: The Art of Oswaldo Guayasamín at FAU. This traveling exhibition surveys the work of one of the most highly regarded Latin American artists of the twentieth century, Ecuadorian artist Oswaldo Guayasamín (1919-1999). The exhibition will be at FAU’s Schmidt Center Gallery through Saturday, December 6. Though the artist’s work has exhibited extensively in Latin America and Europe, this is the first exhibition of any of his work in the United States in more than half a century. FAU is one of six sites selected for this unprecedented national tour.
FAU’s galleries are open Tuesday through Friday, 1 to 4 p.m. and Saturdays, 1 to 5 p.m. Guided class and group tours are welcome during public hours or at alternative hours by appointment. For more information, call 561-297-2966 or visit www.fau.edu/galleries.
