The work of internationally and locally famous Mexican artist Cristina Cárdenas has been showcased at the YWCA's Frances McClelland Community Center since the beginning of the month. 

If you haven't checked it out already, plan to go tomorrow between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. for the opening reception because Cárdenas will be there hanging out.

There will be music by the local band Tumbao. They play Cuban son, salsa and Latin jazz. 

The pieces at the YW will exhibit the past about 15 years of Cárdenas' work. The painter/sculptor/print maker/activist follows the traditions of other Latin American artists - like muralist Diego Rivera—of using her pieces to protest social and political issues affecting Latinos, women from all over and others. 

The show runs through Feb. 19.
