American Sabor Dances with Dallas

American Sabor is in full swing in the Big D! On March 22, the Latino Cultural Center celebrated the Dallas opening of American Sabor with a special reception for the community of honor – a group comprised of community leaders, educators, youth groups, and others that support the exhibition's presence in Dallas. 

As part of the reception, Councilmember Delia Jasso presented a special proclamation to Ford Motor Company Fund and the Smithsonian Institution for a long history of supporting innovative programs that celebrate and expand the richness of American diversity and our cultural heritage.

The kick-off festivities continued through the weekend with a variety of fun and interactive events. There was truly something for everyone – from break dancing performances to instrument making classes. The celebration culminated with an accordion contest and a concert by the GRAMMY award-winning band, Los Texmaniacs and local accordion legend, Ignacio Morales.

It was a wonderful celebration of community, music, education and sabor! The exhibit will be on display at the LCC from March 24 – June 17, 2012 and is free to the public.
