The South Pasadena City Council, on October 4, 2017 unanimously introduced an ordinance declaring South Pasadena ‘a safe and welcoming city for immigrants’. The council passed the ordinance in an effort to protect the rights and privacy of all residents.

For the opening reception on Sunday, March 25th, refreshments will be provided and a brief introduction to the exhibit will be given by Curators Jimmy O’Balles and Mario Hernandez at 3:30 p.m. Many of artists whose works are displayed will be present as well. The intro will be followed by a reading by extraordinary author Sehba Sarwar who has published essays, poems, and short stories in in India, Pakistan, the U.S., and Canada. Some of them have been on the theme of borderlessness.

After the free Sanctuary Exhibit closes for the night on Sunday, March 25 at 7 p.m., the Community Room will reopen from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, March 26; 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 28; and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 29.

On Wednesday, March 28 at 5 p.m., author and Cal State Northridge Professor Mario Ontiveros will discuss his book “BACA, Art Collaboration & Mural Making” published by Angel City Press about landmark muralist Judith F. Baca and the Great Wall of L.A. Autographed copies of books will be available for purchase.

Jimmy Espinoza, the bassist and Bobby Robles, the guitarist from the legendary 60s East LA rock band, Thee Midniters will perform for the close of the exhibit on Thursday, March 29 at 5:00 p.m. Jimmy and Bobby are certain to play their two biggest hits, “Land of 1,000 Dances” and “Whittier Boulevard,” as well as many other well-known tunes.

Thee Midniters are still together and continue to play concerts all over. Most of the band members attended Salesian High School and were largely school trained. Their music was highly professional and musically sophisticated, especially compared to the surf groups of the time. In East LA they were regarded as superstars. They are the only 1960s band from East Los Angeles that has released a Greatest Hits album.

The Library Community Room is located at 1115 El Centro Street. Admission is free and no tickets or reservations are necessary.
