Hugo http://www.specialacademy.org/Velasco, a hearing-impaired 2003 graduate of Alhambra High School, was one of the painters and illustrators showcasing work last week at the Alhambra Latino Association’s annual Literatura & Cultura Festival. Velasco is now a principal artist at the Academy of Special Dreams, a Pasadena-based organization that provides creative opportunities for special needs adults. The group made an excellent short film about the festival, highlighting the children dance groups, poetry slams, and workshops that brought hundreds to Alhambra High on a rainy Saturday.
