Don’t have plans for International Women’s Day?

Friday, March 8 "celebrate and honor the shining beauty and talent of the women in our communities,” states the art of body : body of art Facebook event page, at The Front at Casa Familiar (147 W. San Ysidro Blvd.) from 5 p.m to 10 p.m.

The 6th Annual Dia de la Mujer Art Exhibition is a juried art show which will feature entries from over 35 female artists from local, national and trans-border soil whose art celebrates the female and her form.

A “quiet time” with the art is promised at the opening reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

However, one of the trifectas of happiness – food, beer, and crafts vendors – will be on hand during these hours as well.

A Mujeres Crafts Market will feature goods by:

Chula Maiz

Sew Loka Handmade

TumbolWeed Soaps

Ribbons & Rockabilly

Vida Mia Boutique

La Chica Boutique

Mariscos German Gastrotruck will be there, too, selling their “seaworthy culinary desires” while Stone Brewing Company slings the cold brews.

From 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. is when “quiet time” ends and the music kicks in.

DJ Ana Brown, co- founder of The Roots Factory, will be on the decks and promises to spin an eclectic mix of Cumbia, Reggae, Funk, Soul, Jazz, Hip-Hop and Rock en Espanol.

There will also be a live performance by “drum and dance roots music” group Bomba Liberte.

“Now in its 6th year, the Dia de la Mujer cultural programming has flourished as we have had the honor of working with judges whose selection process has helped elevate the exhibition to another level," states the Casa Familiar website.

“Throughout 5 years of growth, the Dia de la Mujer programming has been able to retain the essence so vital to its conception and continued success, the need to establish a safe space for women to create art and representations of womanhood.”
