Off to a rough start today. Up late while working on a project last night and one of my boys up since 5 this AM. While at the park my boys hand me these and say "dad this is for you" they both hand me some flowers they picked. First time anyone has given me flowers feels kind of nice hahah. Thanks for the smile little dudes.
He wanted to put the sticker the post office lady gave him on the tractor. I said okay then he said he wanted to draw a happy face on it.

Aaron De La Cruz
MACLA is an inclusive contemporary arts space grounded in the Chicano/Latino experience that incubates new visual, literary and performance art in order to engage people in civic dialogue and community transformation.
MACLA opens its 2015-16 season with Found in Translation, with works by award-winning, California-based artists Pilar Agüero-Esparza, Aaron De La Cruz, Rogelio Gutierrez and Patrick Martinez.
The artists in Found in Translation transform everyday objects and materials (from street signs to crayons) to illustrate the complexities of the human experience in a multi-lingual and multi-cultural world. While firmly grounded in their personal histories as sons and daughters of urban and rural California, their work speaks to the ways in which multi-culturalism is communicated, (re)interpreted, and (mis)understood in contemporary society.
