The exhibition celebrates the 45th Anniversary of the East Los Angeles cultural and community art organization, Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) and looks back at over four decades of the organization’s artistic innovation and excellence and organizational resilience, by featuring a display of over fifty fine art prints from throughout the organization’s history. Curated by Cal State LA Faculty, Michelle Lopez, MA/MFA and Victor Hugo Viesca, PhD., in partnership with SHG, the exhibition also looks forward to an exciting evolution of Chicana/o and Latinx aesthetics.
Self-Help Graphics & Art (SHG) is a community center in East Los Angeles dedicated to the creation and promotion of new works by Chicana/o and Latinx artists through experimental and innovative printmaking techniques. Since 1973, SHG has been the intersection where arts and community meet, providing a forum for local and international artists.
