Winter Public Presentation | Students Present at the Skirball Cultural Center

  • Skirball Cultural Center 2701 North Sepulveda Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90049 United States (map)

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 Skirball Cultural Center on Friday, March 6, 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

In what ways might the artistic process be a space for healing and care? In the Winter season, students at various alternative high schools across L.A. County explored the theme After the Flood: Building Community through Rituals of Care. Inspired by the immersive Noah’s Ark installation at the Skirball Cultural Center, artworxLA students will build a metaphorical ark of their own through the creation of rituals that traverse self-care, inter-generational care, care for community, and care for the environment.

Learning from ancient flood stories across cultures and the transformation of materials in the interactive Noah’s Ark galleries, students will draw from traditions and imagine new iterations of “care-giving” and “taking care.” Rituals might include dance, sound, ceremony, media, or design, and projects will explore the role of the artist as a practitioner for healing communities and building resilience.
