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 Fowler Museum at UCLA in partnership with UCLA’s Art & Global Health Center on Thursday, February 13, 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 can the arts be powerful tools for combating stigma? In the Winter season, students at various alternative high schools across L.A. County explored the theme Banish Stigma: The Power of Personal Voice and Representation. Through exhibitions at the Fowler Museum at UCLA, artworxLA students will explore personal voice and nuanced storytelling in digital media, installation, and mixed-media assemblage.

Through Positive Eyes illuminates the life experiences of individuals living with HIV and AIDS from ten major cities across the globe. The exhibition includes powerful photo essays that address key themes of the AIDS epidemic: widespread stigma, extreme social inequality, and limited access to lifesaving medication. The retrospective Rina Banerjee: Make Me A Summary of the World guides viewers through the artist’s interpretation of the world while revealing the associations and experiences viewers bring to the trip. Galvanized by both exhibitions to confront stigma in their own lives, students will create projects that build empathy, challenge labels, and stamp out judgment and bias.
