Sixth District Councilmember Dee Andrews and Cambodian Town, Inc. will host the 3rd Annual Cambodian Arts and Culture Exhibition, at 10am on Saturday, Nov. 19, at MacArthur Park, 1321 E. Anaheim St.
The open-air festival will have hands-on demonstrations of a variety of art forms from
Cambodia’s rich and ancient culture. Local Cambodian artisans and culture bearers will share their expertise through interactive demonstrations. “This event is a jewel in our city,” Andrews said. “It reaches beyond the barriers to bring residents together to celebrate and educate with the beauty of art.”
Among the arts and cultural practices on display will be Cambodian classical dance and costuming, drawing, shadow puppets, music and musical instruments, textiles, dressmaking, weddings, gardening, cooking, and games. This year the exhibition will begin with a traditional Khmer (Cambodian) prayer ceremony at 10am.
All of the activities are free and open to the public. For more information call Andrews’s office at (562) 570-6816 or the Exhibition program coordinator, Susan Needham, Ph.D., at (310) 243-3485.
