Sal Rojas’ Third Root Photo Gallery
The highlight of Saturday night’s “Art Walk” didn’t even take place within the Artist Village. Hands down the highlight of the evening was Sal Rojas’ Afro-Mexican photography exhibit held at wonderful little store, Calacas, located at 324 W. 4th Street #B in downtown Santa Ana.
The exhibit, which was presented by BrownPride.com, was called “The Third Root | La Tercera Raiz” and “captures the life of Afro-Mexicans and their communities”. Rojas did a magnificent job with the photos that bring to life the Afro-Mexican culture.
Afro-Mexicans make up more than 5% of Mexico’s population; yet remain invisible to the majority of Mexicans.
Besides getting to enjoy the wonderful photography exhibit I got to browse around this terrific little store full of products that celebrate the cultures of Latinos and the indigenous people of this area.
