ARTgrove VOL. 3: “Mother’s Day Celebration”
Honoring our Mothers – May 7, 2022
ARTgrove Vol 3 was held at Old Town Plaza in the City of Elk Grove. It was a beautiful day of honoring our Mother’s with an artistic cultural twist! Honoring Mom with amazing murals, an Azteca blessing by Kalpulli Xihuacoatl, Salsa lessons by Dance on the Edge and Bachata Festival, Zumba by Gloria, Encore Studio of Performing Arts and a performance by Instituto Mazatlan Bellas Artes. An event with shopping, flowers, entertainment, food and a beautiful memorial of butterflies for our Moms who have passed. In addition artist Markos Egure built and painted a 16′ x 10′ Monarch butterly as the stage backdrop. The mural artwork, paintings and artisan hand crafted items were absolutely beautiful and the food was fantastic! All in all it was a beautiful day! This was the first of its kind festival brought to the City of Elk Grove to share our culture, inspire the community to appreciate the cultural arts. This event was also sponsored by the City of Elk Grove, Elk Grove Arts Commission, SMUD, PinkStreetART and Wes Kos Images.
