New York Celebrates Mexico’s Bicentennial

NEW YORK – Celebrities from the worlds of show business, sports and politics gathered in New York for the inauguration of Revealing Mexico Week, one of the events in the bicentennial celebrations of Mexican Independence.

Mexican Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, actresses Edith Gonzalez and Yolanda Montes and Spanish tenor Placido Domingo, among other personalities, attended the opening night gala at Rockefeller Center.

Culture and gastronomy are the core activities, and include an exhibition of photos from photographer John Mack’s and writer Susanne Steines’ newly released book, “Revealing Mexico.”

Through 24 black-and-white photographs taken between 2001 and 2010, Mack, who lived in Mexico for 10 years, shows the country in all its rich variety and cultural diversity.

The exhibit includes pictures that go from those taken of billionaire Carlos Slim, writer Carlos Fuentes and singer Chavela Vargas to fishermen, taco vendors and landscapes, accompanied by commentaries by Steines and quotes from individuals interviewed in the book.

The commemorative events also include a culinary tasting on Tuesday, with Martha Ortiz, owner of the Dulce Patria restaurant in Mexico, preparing dishes from the modern Mexican cuisine.

Meanwhile, Rafael Marquez, captain of Mexico’s national soccer team and a star with the New York Red Bulls, will sign autographs.

Mack and Steines will also sign copies of their book, which went on sale last month. EFE
