Revelers enjoy a dynamic performance by Capoeira Batuque, Southern California’s longest-standing capoeira academy, celebrating the Fowler Museum’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA exhibition Axé Bahia: The Power of Art in an Afro-Brazilian Metropolis. Born in the 16th century, the Afro-Brazilian art form combines martial arts, acrobatics, music, dance and ritual. The Fowler exhibition is on view through April 15, 2018.
