Sofrito by Jorge Félix
Date(s) - Thursday, April 23, 2015
3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center and the Heritage Garden Student Group
Sofrito is a social-performance by Jorge Félix that engages the artist and the public into a family experience by combining art, food and politics. Food recipes connects us through conversations about community development, politics, religion and other charged topics that traditionally happen among family and friends. The public will come to chop, grind, talk and hopefully leave the performance with a different understanding about community and a little handmade Sofrito.
Program closes with a 15 min Recipe & Story Sharing Workshop by the UIC Heritage Garden!
