Muzeo's free Open Book Author's series is Thursday, September 21 from 6pm to 8pm, and features author Lance Charnes, a retired lieutenant colonel in the Air Force reserves and intelligence officer who will discuss his book, "The Collection: The Dewitt Associates Project Files #1".  The story unfolding is of a former gallery owner and convicted art thief who finds himself on parole and in debt ... until a shadowy woman from his past recruits him to find a cache of stolen art that could be worth millions. This is a book that is full of intrigue and mystery. The program includes readings, open discussion, an opportunity to purchase books and have them signed by the author. RSVP to clatham@muzeo.org.

In the Main Gallery, Deconstructing Liberty: A Destiny Manifested continues through October 15.  This exhibit is part of The Getty's Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles.  Through performance, installation, video, and photography, these artists present concepts of the importance of American liberty and some may challenge ideas traditionally associated with these liberties as they resonate in forms of collective identity across the globe.

September 23, brings the collaborative effort of the Deconstructing Liberty curator, Marisa Caichiolo, artists, Leonardo Gonzalez [Honduras] and Angel Delgado [Cuba]; Joe Purtell, Anaheim Public Library Coordinator for the 'Into the Beautiful North' Big Read book choice and Aline Sardão, the Brazilian-born musical director of the Orange County Symphony. They will conduct a panel discussion on 'Crossing Borders with Art & Literature'. Discussion will be held from 1-3pm in the Main Gallery and attendees will be treated to the Deconstructing Liberty exhibit, gratis. Donations are encouraged.
