People who have saved this event:


This exhibit features a three-part series of artists who use craft to address Latino identity and the ever-mutating sociopolitical tensions in Los Angeles and California.


The first exhibition of the series will feature Los Angeles native Jaime Guerrero, one of the first artists in the world to produce life-size figures in glass. Guerrero will create a group of blown-glass, life-size sculptures representing the children who are detained at the border each day. The second exhibition will feature ceramic sculptural works by Oaxaca-born, Los Angeles-based artist Gerardo Monterrubio, who breathes new life into the ceramic vessel with his graphic, polychromatic surface imagery. The final exhibition will be a collaboration between acclaimed fiber artist Consuelo Jimenez Underwood and select students from Craft in America’s educational outreach program at Los Angeles public high schools, where the artist will work with students to create a special installation.
