Opening August 5, “Deconstructing Liberty: A Destiny Manifested” is part of “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA,” a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles.

Opening August 5, “Deconstructing Liberty: A Destiny Manifested” is part of “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA,” a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Through performance, installation, video, and photography, artists present concepts of the importance of American liberty, and some may challenge ideas traditionally associated with these liberties as they resonate in forms of collective identity across the globe.

Through August 20, the exhibit “Brush Strokes”- Asian traditional and contemporary calligraphy with seal stone carvings by artist Young Hoon Kim- continues in the Carnegie Galleries. These art pieces are available for sale. Also through August 20, “YEDA/Crops of Love Art Exhibi” features the art of local students. Sale of their art enables the students and their teacher to support a school art program they started in Malawi, Africa.

The Lunch and Learn series continues on Wednesday, August 9 at 11:30 a.m. with a free one-hour presentation on the development of the Anaheim Public Library and the Carnegie Library building. The presentation will be given by Jane Newell, the Heritage Services Manager for Anaheim Public Library. She is responsible for implementing major projects to preserve and make accessible Anaheim's rich history and culture for future generations. Bring your lunch, if you wish, and arrive by 11:15 a.m. as this program starts promptly at 11:30 in the Carnegie Building and concludes at 12:30. RSVP to clatham@muzeo.org.

This month's edition of Open Book is Thursday, August 17 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and features author Joe De Ladurantey, who will talk about his latest book “Cowards, Crooks, and Warriors.” This is the story of a family man and patrol officer who finds himself in the middle of a murder mystery that keeps the reader guessing until the very last page. Joe De Ladurantey is a radio host, retired police officer and author of crime novels. The program includes readings, open discussion, and an opportunity to purchase books and have them signed by the author. RSVP to clatham@muzeo.org.
