Vincent Pacheco: Smile Now, Cry Later

Artist Vincent Pacheco opens Smile Now, Cry Later an immersive installation of sound, color, and, most importantly, piñatas. The piñatas range from a nostalgic VHS tape of some favorite movies from his Chicano upbringing in San Francisco to an oversized syringe - an artifact of his early proximity to close family members who were active in the Mexican Mafia and the drug trade.

Strict COVID rules will be enforced. Check out the neighborhood parking advice.
