Gabriela Serrato-Lone, a member of ChicanxUnknown, a photography collective, secured a nearly $1,000 grant from the Highland Park Neighborhood Council to help pay for the “Divine Energy: Herstory Block Party,” on Saturday, Mar. 10, from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Ave. 52 between York Blvd. and Meridian St. The block party, which will be held in conjunction with the monthly NELA Art Walk, is intended to promote women entrepreneurship, art and culture in Highland Park. In addition to bands, displays and other activities, there will be an exhibition of Ms. Serrato-Lone’s photographs, entitled “Self Love,” at Mi Vida, a women’s store for apparel and accessories at York Blvd. and Ave. 52.
