ARTS RESOURCING: GATHERING AND CULTIVATING OUR COMMUNITIES:

Are you a visual, performing or literary artist, arts organizer, arts administrator, or community or civic leader in San Bernardino County? Join us in Joshua Tree, CA for an inspiring day highlighting how artists, municipalities, and organizations from across the county have integrated arts and culture initiatives into a sustainable, community-based approach. This conference will provide an opportunity to network and share your own work and contribute to this evolving county-wide arts dialogue. Afternoon sessions include professional practice workshops and discussions on important topics in the expanding fields of art and creative practices.

“San Bernardino is a beautiful city.” This simple statement, a conviction, comes easily to mind for Michael because he was raised here. Understandably, this concept may be hard to imagine or confirm by way of mainstream media. The city’s name alone evokes a negative image for most who have no first-hand knowledge of San Bernardino. This narrow focus does not come close to describing the city nor the community.
 

 

With a rich and diverse history, San Bernardino has the potential to regain its vibrancy and strength. What began as a personal response to tragedy has evolved into showcasing the city’s landscape in a positive light. The images in this exhibition, and forthcoming book, portray the artist’s view of San Bernardino - confirming that beauty exists here, if you slow down and look for it.

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! 

 

Over $300,000+ in awards to artists!
