“American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music,” an exhibition traveling from the Smithsonian to Cal State L.A., presents the musical contributions of U.S. Latinos from the 1940s to the present. It explores the social history and individual creativity that produced stars, such as Tito Puente, Ritchie Valens, Celia Cruz, Carlos Santana and Selena. The exhibition will be on view in the Fine Arts Gallery at CSULA from Nov. 16 through Feb. 9, 2014.

A day-long opening celebration on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m., will feature Latino-themed music, art, film, and dance to accompany guided tours of the American Sabor exhibition.
