GLENN HEIGHTS – The city of Glenn Heights continues to reaffirm its commitment to diversity, arts and culture. Touted as one of Mayor Victor Pereira’s focus areas during his term, the city council has increased focus on initiatives that highlight and promote diversity within the city.
In recognition of Cinco de Mayo, the city formally recognized through proclamation, the contributions of Latino-Americans, which make up more than 22 percent of the population.
Local artist Ruben Pereira (no relation to the mayor) and founder of Sketching Love, will have various artworks exhibited at Glenn Heights City Hall during the month of May. Sketching Love, a movement focused on exploring religion through art, has connected with more than 50 painting students, young adults and children to develop their artistic skills and discover new talents and inspiration.
Ruben, a Mexico City native and Glenn Heights resident, has hopes of one day opening a school for the arts for local students.
The exhibit features original artworks by artists Leslie Viveros and Jacky and is free to the public. Artworks will be displayed at Glenn Heights City Hall located at 1938 S. Hampton.
