July 23rd & 24th: We had the pleasure of having Ofelia Medina here at Casa Circulo. Medina is a Mexican actress, singer and screenwriter of Mexican films. On Saturday night Medina performed a theater piece written by Humberto Robles called La Noche Que Jamas Existio at the Veterans Memorial theater in Redwood City. Following her performance, Ofelia Medina gave an amazing acting workshop here at Casa Circulo on Sunday. 

Thank you Ofelia Medina for visiting us!

July 31st: Master Ortiz and his Tae Kwon Do class traveled to a tournament. They had LOTS OF FUN! Friendly competition is always healthy. :)

Monday, August 1st: Casa Circulo Cultural was excited to install a traditional Tehuana dress hand made in Oaxaca, a pair of shoes, and some accessories for the Native Dress exhibit at the San Mateo County History Museum. A huge thank you to Quinto Sol for supporting and donating the dress for this project! 

Make sure to go check out the exhibit at: 

San Mateo County History Museum
2200 Broadway, Redwood City, CA 94063.

Monday, August 8th: Thank you to the San Mateo County History Museum for thinking of us for this project. We installed a traditional ALTAR for an exhibit also at the San Mateo County History Museum. One of the most important elements of Día De Los Muertos is the altar, it's an elaborate constructions to celebrate those family members who have passed away.

August 10th: Back in May (2016) Casa Circulo decided to start a new project– we joined the Redwood City Utility Box Mural Project. After the initial plans and sketches, we got approved and got to work! After hours of planning, drawing, painting, and lots of fun, we finished the box! 

The box is designed by our very own Board Member, Victor Luna (pictured on the right during the first stages of the box). 

Victor had help from some of our other talented artists from Casa Circulo to finish the project.

Make sure to go check out the box located at Jefferson Ave. and Marshall Street in front of Bank of America.
