This is an open community call to populate the walls of the Clara & Allen Gresham Art Gallery of San Bernardino Valley College with the words and images of what life looks and feels like across San Bernardino County. This could be photographs of the view from your window or a portrait of your family. This could take form as a short poem or a collage of postcards from your local gift shop. These walls are going to represent the vivid, textured layers of our lives that we can never see in one pass on a map.

Where do you find yourself, in whose company, in what layers of culture, history, religion, and environment? What are the ways you share that experience with those around you?

A map only contains the layers of information we decide to include and the lens we choose to put on. When you look at a map of San Bernardino County, it is a vast space containing over 20,000 square miles, where 75% of the population lives on just 2.5% of the land. But this data doesn’t convey the rich experiences each of you have with the land you love, steward and share with those closest to you.

We are creating a gallery sized portrait of those selves and those places that populate the largest county in the lower 48. Those 24 cities, 27 census designated places, 77 unincorporated communities, 5 reservations, and 3 ghost towns.

Intersection

A LAUNCH LA OPEN CALL GROUP EXHIBITION @The Korean Cultural Center, Los Angeles

August 17 to August 30, 2018

An intersection occurs when two or more paths cross: where cultures, histories, ambitions or chance converge, creating defining moments of decision, denial or opportunity. For some, the paths are riddled with obstacles or even blocked, while the way is smoothed for others. The opportunity is fleeting for some, but can last a lifetime for others. “Intersection” is a call to artists who respond to these diverging and converging courses in their work. This exhibition aims to brings together artists from across Southern California whose practices express components of intersectionality, privilege, choices, culture, chance, or events.

LAUNCH LA, in partnership with The Korean Cultural Center, invites all Southern California visual artists to submit work for a juried exhibition and competition at The Korean Cultural Center, 5505 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, August 17 to August 30, 2018.

Call for artists is open!
