All Day Trinh Mai: That We Should Be Heirs Trinh Mai: That We Should Be Heirs That We Should Be Heirs encourages participants to engage in the lost art of letter writing as a method of alleviating burdens and promoting healing. By putting hand to paper and joining one another in this collective activity of personal letter writing, we can share in this intimate process of privately documenting the stories, hardships, and triumphs that connect us all. Letters written by immigrants and families of immigrants are encouraged. Letters handwritten in participants' native tongues are welcomed and encouraged. Writings by survivors are encouraged. This project includes on-site activities and off-site workshops during which participants will be asked to write letters to themselves and/or others to pay respect to those who have shared in our heartaches and the approaches we've found to quiet our pain. All writings will be rolled and bound with string, and therefore, will remain private as part of the installation.

That We Should Be Heirs aims to offer a hallowed space for the participants to release their burdens and their fears into the art. As more letters are received, the installation will continue to evolve. This project focuses on one of the most profound commonalities that we all have—our desire to heal, our constant search for new ways to alleviate our burdens, our hope to gain victory over fear, and the consistent need to let go of the things that have a way of hardening our hearts.

7:00 PM Talk: Patrolling the Stingaree "You are entering the Stingaree District. This area is known to be populated by anarchists, confidence men, cut throats, shady ladies, hop heads, perverts, and thieves. You are responsible for your own safety…" This was part of an actual notice posted on January 15th, 1913 by order of Police Chief Keno Wilson to warn anyone entering the downtown San Diego area south of Broadway that they were entering a seedy red-light district. It was known then as the "Stingaree" because it was said you could get "stung" in the area by vice faster than you could get stung by the many stingrays in San Diego Bay. Many of the city's "undesirables" populated the area as it was home to numerous saloons, brothels, and gambling halls. Join us on Wednesday, March 13th at 7 PM as The San Diego Police Museum shares the history of the notorious "Stingaree" and the policemen who were in charge of patrolling it!

Admission/Cost: $5 museum entrance fee.

8:00 PM Music: Alfredo Rodríguez & Pedrito Martinez Grammy-nominated artists, pianist Alfredo Rodríguez and percussionist Pedrito Martinez first worked together on Rodríguez's 2012 release The Invasion Parade. Since that initial recording session, they have had the rare occasion to perform together as a duo, leaving audiences completely mesmerized by their fearless and virtuosic playing. A protégé of Quincy Jones, Rodríguez was schooled in the rigorous classical conservatories of Havana, while Martinez's musical training came directly from the streets of the Cayo Hueso neighborhood of Old Havana, where he was raised. Bringing different approaches to their joint performance, the master musicians take listeners on a unique and exciting journey.
