Such an amazing celebration of art and performance! artworxLA students from across Los Angeles celebrated the completion of their Fall 2017 season with Public Presentations at the Autry Museum, the Japanese American National Museum, and the Los Angeles Public Library. Accompanied by the friends and peers each student exhibited works exploring sci-fiction, community journalism, and Japanese history. Though a creative lens, each student grew their depth of knowledge of these topics while developing their technical skills in art. Congratulations artworxLA students

Thanks to the Japanese American National Museum, the Los Angeles Public Library, and the Autry Museum of the American West for supporting the creative exploration of our students.

A huge congratulations to our newly selected Fall 2017 Advanced Programs Student Interns. After a series of interviews, each student expressed a passion to explore creative industries, participate in leadership development and prepare themselves to become young professionals. This 12-week paid internship program is an opportunity to connect each student to resources beyond the arts such as resume-building, financial literacy, college preparation and public speaking while nurturing each student's skills as a leader. 

We congratulate each student and we look forward to collaborating with them over the next 12-weeks.
