McA2 held its first Virtual Art Walk on June 5 @6pm via YouTube. This was the first of a summer series, with the next events on the first Fridays of July & August to come via our YouTube Channel.
The collaboration came about for the need to express art into our community. Angelika Eleni Ruiz Gualberto & Victoria Lopez, who were the hosts of the event, successfully executed the June event in collaboration with Mr. Joe Martinez, of KCYP and Stephen Samuel Lopez who handled the technical aspect of this virtual art walk.
