Latino Roots AND School of the Arts Toots

Professor and Chicano/Chicana Latino Studies Director Vicki Ruiz blows us away with her coverage at the now 5 year old dept. at UCI; her contributions and appearances in the PBS series “Latino Americans;” her nation-wide professional affiliations and mentoring of students and new professors; and her signing off reference to Noche de Altares celebrating the Day of the Dead in nearby Santa Ana, CA. UCI Dean of the Claire Trevor Bren School of the Arts (CTSA) Joseph Lewis brings a richly endowed calendar of performances and exhibitions presented at UCI for 2013-14. Samples of his music, along with those of CTSA faculty Alan Terricciano and Michael Dessen, are included in the show. Information about the school’s offerings are available at the box office 949-824-2787 or              Latino Roots AND School of the Arts Toots
