SNAPSHOT: Reflexiones / Reflections Opening At Cafe Con Leche
Cafe con Leche on Vernor and Scotten hosted the opening for Lisa Luevanos' photography exhibit 'Reflexiones' on Friday, May 4, 2012. Lisa has sought to celebrate and preserve Latino heritage in her work over the past three decades. Born and raised in Southwest Detroit, her photographs document various aspects of the history of the neighborhood. For a night the coffee shop was transformed into a venue in overt celebration of and community. Several generations of artists from the community came together to enjoy coffee, view the exhibit, and even work on costumes and other props for the Cinco de Mayo parade. Lisa's exhibit will remain on display at Cafe con Leche, now open 7 days a week, through the end of June.
