Gabriela Garcia Medina
Doors open at 6:30pm
Born in Russia to Cuban parents, Gabriela Garcia Medina has seen the world through eyes most haven’t. As an international spoken word artist and award-winning poet, her poetry has taken her to places such as South Africa, Cuba, Brazil, Switzerland and all over the United States. Her poetry ranges from topics as serious as the social injustices we all face to talking about her lingerie. Gabriela has been relentlessly touring since 2007 with over 10 NACA regional Showcases and NACA Nationals on her resume as well. And now her words have found a permanent home on the walls of Eva Longoria’s restaurant “Besos” in Los Angeles. You may have also seen her national commercials for Dove, Toyota and Coca-Cola, which features her poetry and performance – and it’s a performance you won’t want to miss.
Hosted in the Maintenance Shop located within the Memorial Union on Sunday, September 17, at 7 pm.
