This Saturday: Check the Fashion & Arts Humanities Fête

Hello Urbanites!

Do you have plans this Saturday? How about checking out The Fashion and Arts Humanity Fete? This is an event where nominated entities in Chicagoland’s fashion and arts communities are awarded and honored for their notable humanitarian and community achievements. The goal of the event is to give thanks for humane and charitable accomplishments and encourage others to give back to their communities, especially within the Art and Fashion industry. This year marks the celebration of the new organization “The Arts of Humanity”, created based on the platform for Fashion and Arts Humanities Fete. The Arts of Humanities is an educational and charitable organization that fosters the positive qualities of being a civilized human via the study, practice, and observation of compassion, selflessness, and dignity in self and others.

Win Tickets to Sones de Mexico’s 13 B’ak’tun concert: A Mayan Calendar Celebration

Sones de Mexico Ensemble presents
a spectacular concert experience and light show

13 B’AK’TUN: a celebration of the turning of the Mayan long-count calendar cycle

End of an Era • New Beginning

Sones de México, a two-time GRAMMY award nominated sextet based in Chicago, will present a spectacular concert and a light show in honor of the 13 B’ak’tun. All ages are welcome. This is a show you will not want to miss!

B’ak’tun is a measure of time in the ancient Maya long-count calendar cycle equivalent to 144,000 days (394 years). The current 13th B’ak’tun will mark the completion of a 5,122 year period in December of 2012. While popular culture portrays it as an apocalyptic “end of times,” the Mayans view it more optimistically and see it as a cause for celebration and renewal. Many Mayan communities in Southeastern Mexico and Guatemala are preparing to make special events and festivals to celebrate the 13 B’ak’tun in December.

Sones de Mexico Ensemble joins the celebration with a spectacular show as you have never seen them before. It will be a musical homage to the rich and diverse cultural heritage of Mexico with robotic lights, backlights, and fluorescent paint.

This concert will be filmed for a TV special. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind spectacle
