A Diverse Blend Celebrates 10 Years of Rhythmix

Eric J. Kos

 

In what some described as a wonderful escape from current events last Saturday, people of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicites joined together to celebrate the arts phenomenon that is Rhythmix Cultural Works (RCW). The cultural arts center just celebrated 10 years of bringing the world’s most talent musicians, dancers and visual artists to Alameda. 

The event included live perfomances; wine, beer and spirits tastings; a panel of women wine, beer and booze makers as well as giant spreads of food from many of the Island’s favorite restaurants. 

A presentation in RCW’s K Gallery documents the center’s 10 years serving Alameda, not only in bringing the many talents to the Rhythmix stage, but also through generous efforts to support arts education in local schools.
