July’s First Friday: Latino Culture Celebration at Mainframe Studios


Artists Siricasso (Siriaco Garcia) and Seso Marentes are taking over Mainframe and coordinating an exciting event to celebrate Latino culture on Friday, July 5 from 5-8pm at Mainframe Studios. 

As Seso likes to say “Everyone wants to attend a Latino barbeque so all are welcome to the carne asada.” Don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience authentic Latino food, art, and culture. There will be piñatas,lLowriders, art activities, and a powerful exhibition of new work in the atrium by Siricasso called, “smile now, cry later.” 

Siri’s work will spread awareness about drug abuse for the kids who have incarcerated parents. The messages he shares will inspire the community to better support kids who are dealing with anxiety, depression, and homelessness because of parents who are involved with drug addiction. His work will remind people it’s okay to cry and let out your emotions instead of putting a mask on them. 


Al Exito, Full Drop Studio and Eternal Artwear will also be on site in the Atrium, and Siricasso will hold a “Sip & Paint” activity in The Big Room alongside DJ Astro. Enjoy food from Hot Tamale Catering, Maria’s Tacos, and more!  

The 2nd floor gallery will feature art and photography by Miriam Alarcon and Anthony Arroyo. Ashely Guzman and Milton Eclatt will showcase their art in the 3rd Floor Gallery, and Seso Marentes will host a community art activity in the 4th floor gallery space. 

Explore 181 artist studios, support local creatives, and experience our diverse cultural community. Free shuttle available from Crocker & 8th Street parking lot to Mainframe’s Atrium entrance.
