The endangered snow leopard cubs (two-thirds of snow leopard habitats are threatened by climate change ) born at the LA Zoo in May just made their public debut.

Now- January. Murals: Visualizing Language
There’s a plethora of incredible art exhibits being hosted in over 70 venues across SoCal to celebrate the 3rd installment of the “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA” initiative funded by the Getty Foundation. It gives Latin American Art the much-needed attention it deserves. One of those exhibitions, “Visualizing Language” is at our Central Los Angeles Public Library and it is stunning Tomatoes.
“Visualizing Language: Oaxaca in L.A.”, presented by The Library Foundation of LA and the LA Public Library, is an exhibition and programming series at the Downtown Central Library and participating neighborhood libraries throughout the city, as part of PST:LA/LA. You will still find in the 1930s-painted mural, “Four Great Eras of California History”, in the central rotunda. But it is now rightfully accompanied by eight 13 foot rich, colorful, poignant and timely oil-on-canvas murals by the Oaxacan artist collective, Tlacolulokos. An alternative and equally important part of our history that celebrates the rich social fabric of LA and its vibrant contemporary Oaxacan community which happens to be the largest indigenous group in Mexico and LA. I love that it represents and recognizes the elements of both cultures and how they evolve together Tomatoes. And it’s pretty too!
