Celebrate our students as they present their final projects for the Fall season!

After ten weeks of hard work, our students will present their final projects for the Winter season at the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College on Thursday, February 20, 2020. Join us to experience their artwork in person and hear directly from student representatives as they share their artistic process with us! This celebration is free and open to the public.

Background

How does art embody, investigate, and reimagine our shifting and multiple identities? In the Winter season, students at various alternative high schools across L.A. County explored the theme Double Vision: Art at the Intersection of Identities. Engaging with the work of contemporary artists on view at the Vincent Price Art Museum, artworxLA students will consider how art is interpreted and created from intersecting identities.

Since the 1950s, photographer George Rodriguez has documented multiple social worlds. The exhibition Double Vision: The Photography of George Rodriguez is a rare mix of Hollywood and Chicano L.A., film premieres and farmworker strikes, album covers and street scenes, celebrity portraits and civil rights marches. Students will also explore the work of Carolina Caycedo, Yolanda González, and Umar Rashid (Frohawk Two Feathers) and produce their own works that highlight their relationships to family, space and place, the past and the future.
