'TED Talk Tuesdays' Continue to Inspire at The Boutique

November 28, 2017

Visionary muralist Misael Ivan Lopez will take the podium for the next TED Talk Tuesday, set to take place at The Boutique Theater on Tuesday, December 5 from 9:00-11:00 am. Tickets cost $250 pesos each.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The Boutique Theater continues its wildly popular educational discussions, "TED Talk Tuesdays" every other Tuesday from 9-11 am throughout the 2017-2018 season.

The series kicked off on November 21 with "A Stolen Paradise" author, Howard Johns, who gave audience members a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the landmark 1963 movie, The Night of the Iguana, and discussed how the movie put Puerto Vallarta under a worldwide spotlight it had never experienced before.

Next up is Misael Ivan Lopez, a visionary Mexican street artist, who will present "Cultural Fusion: A Muralist's Artistic Journey," on Tuesday, December 5.

Muralist Misael Ivan Lopez was born in 1987 in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. When he was 2, his family moved to Minnesota in search of better work opportunities. His time in the United States reflects in his work, with a touch of graffitti and pop art that underlines his American roots.

In 2010, he was deported back to Mexico, where he found himself displaced in culture shock. He discovered his love for Mexican indigenous and ancient art, like the Huichol people and the Mayan culture. The fusion of these cultures makes for a style of his own, projecting ideas of spirituality and the universe in a direct way with vivid imagery. He recently opened his own gallery in Puerto Vallarta, and his work in community projects has restored spaces in neglected neighborhoods.

Here is the remaining "TED Talk Tuesdays" schedule:

December 19: Marcella Castellanos - Health Coach, Activist, Workshop Facilitator
"Revitalize Your Energy, Recharge Your Life: Five ways to lose weight, feel great, and look 10 years younger"

"Dementia, You're Not the Boss of Me!"

January 23: Petr Myska - Photographer, Biologist, Author

"From Melodies to Meatloaf: How To Succeed in Business WITH Really Trying"

March 6: Dr. Marcia Hootman - Writer, Minister, Musician

Each week, an "interesting person" living in Puerto Vallarta shares his or her expertise and insights, on a variety of socially relevant topics.

Each talk concludes with a half-hour interactive discussion, in which audience members may make comments and ask questions of the speaker. Most presentations will be accompanied by slide illustrations and other media.

Audience-goers are encouraged to remain after the presentations, to cultivate friendships and continue discussions, during a no-host lunch. The Boutique Theater is located upstairs at Nacho Daddy, a popular restaurant, bar and music venue, at 287 Basilio Badillo on Vallarta's south side. Its "Mex-Tex" menu includes such favorites as Tortilla Soup, Steak Nachos, and Chicken Fajitas.

Tickets cost $250 pesos each. While tickets may be remaining at the door for presentations, some ticket-seekers had to be turned away last year. Advance ticket purchases are recommended, from, or at the box office.
