Sunday, April 21, 2013 | 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM   
16500 South Western Avenue, Gardena, CA 90247
Please join us on Sunday, April 21, for the Okinawa Association of America's Spring Concert & Fundraiser! Browse through our yard/rummage sale (many new/unused items), purchase andagi and Okinawa soba for lunch, and enjoy an entertainment program featuring traditional Okinawan music and dance, karate, hula and Polynesian dance, and more! PRESS RELEASE: “Dī tiganē sabira!” translates to “let’s help out!” in Uchinaaguchi, one of Okinawa’s six unique languages. Outside of the Los Angeles Okinawan community, the Okinawa Association of America, Inc. (OAA) may be best known for its Uchinaaguchi class and of course its andagi (also referred to as “Okinawa dango”). South Bay residents often flood and buy out the andagi booths at Obon Festivals and the OAA’s annual October Bazaar, a reaction that the OAA hopes to achieve with their upcoming Spring Concert & Fundraiser on Sunday, April 21. The OAA’s Spring Concert & Fundraiser will benefit their weekly computer classes and the Worldwide Youth Uchinanchu Festival (Wakamono Taikai) on July 18~21. The Wakamono Taikai can be best described as a 4-day conference for “next generation” Uchinanchu (Okinawans) ranging from 18 to 35 years old, with programs that emphasize Uchinanchu identity, strengthen the global Okinawa community, and explore ways in which the younger generations can keep alive the Okinawan traditions, arts, history, and languages. At April 21’s event (free admission), the OAA will be selling homemade andagi as well as Okinawa soba and taco rice (literally taco ingredients over rice; a popular cross-cultural dish in Okinawa). Another highlight of the event will be its lunchtime entertainment line-up of young performers to promote the “next generation” theme of the Wakamono Taikai, featuring: Yoshiaki Chinen (sanshin), Choichi Kai L.A. (sanshin), Shigeru/William Logan (jazz instrumental), Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko L.A. (eisa/taiko), Ai Teshima (hula & Polynesian dance), and traditional dancers Sayuri Kinjo, Amy Ono, and Akiko Yamauchi. The OAA will also have the pleasure of hosting local artists from F*ART (Free + Art), hula students from Hickory Elementary, and guest performers from San Diego: Ashley/ Brandon Arashiro (karate) and San Diego Warabi Eisa (eisa/taiko)! (performances subject to change) The Spring Concert & Fundraiser will be held at the OAA Center (16500 S. Western Ave. Gardena), 11:00AM~2:00PM (entertainment begins at 11). Admission is free. The OAA highly recommends pre-ordering andagi ($3 for 2) and Okinawa soba ($7) because these items tend to sell-out quickly. Tented tables and chairs will be available for eating during the free entertainment program. Please contact the OAA at mensore@earthlink.net or 310-532-1929 to place your orders.

Tuesday, April 23, 2013 | 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM   
TORRANCE ART MUSEUM 3320 Civic Center Drive
These days potential catastrophes are everywhere you look. You can’t go outside or turn on the TV without reports of the world coming to an ‘End’ - global climate collapsing or terrorists planning new attacks. The world is so full of danger, threats, stress, overload and insecurity. Assuming that we, against all odds, survive the terrifying pitfalls of the future, is creativity going to be the thing that saves us? Will our imagination become an escape route, a place where we can hide, or will it be the one thing that forcefully confronts us with the truth and gives us the strength needed to make a change? What kind of art would a generation of unlikely survivors produce and where would they find their inspiration? What influence would surviving a catastrophe have on our values, ethics and our perception of truth and how might this situation visualize itself in the art of the future? This pressure coming from a hyper tense society of doom is having a massive impact on the art being produced by the artists who manage to keep up their practice and it is forcing others to remain passive or paralyzed while waiting for a change of current that may never come.

TORRANCE ART MUSEUM 3320 Civic Center Drive
These days potential catastrophes are everywhere you look. You can’t go outside or turn on the TV without reports of the world coming to an ‘End’ - global climate collapsing or terrorists planning new attacks. The world is so full of danger, threats, stress, overload and insecurity. Assuming that we, against all odds, survive the terrifying pitfalls of the future, is creativity going to be the thing that saves us? Will our imagination become an escape route, a place where we can hide, or will it be the one thing that forcefully confronts us with the truth and gives us the strength needed to make a change? What kind of art would a generation of unlikely survivors produce and where would they find their inspiration? What influence would surviving a catastrophe have on our values, ethics and our perception of truth and how might this situation visualize itself in the art of the future? This pressure coming from a hyper tense society of doom is having a massive impact on the art being produced by the artists who manage to keep up their practice and it is forcing others to remain passive or paralyzed while waiting for a change of current that may never come.
