On Cinco de Mayo – May 5th – from 2pm-5pm Harrison House Music & Arts invites the public for an open house reception with artist-in-residence, Mark Bulwinkle to close the year-long installation of his art exhibition, The Brake Job Cut-Outs at Harrison House.

The Brake Job Cut-Outs is an installation created especially for Harrison House by internationally renowned Bay Area artist Mark Bulwinkle, featuring figurative works representing his signature style of intricate flame-cut galvanized steel and aluminum along with other surprises including hydraulically-pressed stoneware tiles and digitally-created character portraits.

The La Zaraguata Band, led by Jxel Rajchenberg of The Land Trio with special guest Omar Duran plays a wide range of ancient traditional pieces as well as contemporary compositions in the Mexican traditional styles of son chiapaneco, son jarocho, vals oaxaqueño, cumbia, corrido and canción ranchera. Their name is derived from “saraguato” a howler monkey that lives in the jungles of Mexio, Guatamala and Belize with a howl that resembles the roar of a tiger.

Harrison House Music & Arts is an artist residency, performance and community arts program based in the straw bale retreat built by the late composer, Lou Harrison on the edge of Joshua Tree National Park. HHM&A invites gifted artists and audiences into this historic and remarkable building and grounds to share and experience art and culture of the highest caliber.
