The Art of Protest: Epiphany and the Culture of Empowerment
January 4th through March, 2018 at THE CHURCH OF THE EPIPHANY (Lincoln Heights)
An exhibition depicting this parish's involvement in social justice since the late 1960s. Co-curated by LACMA educator Sofia Gutierrez, artist Ricardo Reyes (nurtured in the Chicano Movement at Epiphany), historian Rosalío Muñoz (co-chair of the Chicano Moratorium), and Ravi GuneWardena (principal at Escher GuneWardena, preservation architects for Epiphany), the exhibition brings together work by El Movimiento artists from the 1960s and 1970s with that of contemporary artists and historic photographic documentation of this Lincoln Heights community's role in affirming the rights of native and immigrant Latin Americans in the Los Angeles region over the past 50 years.
Door of Hope
November 18th, 2018 Tish Lampert will be documenting families reuniting at Friendship Park, along the U.S. / Mexican Border.
Enrique Morones and Border Angels have created the opportunity for families who have been torn apart and deported to see their loved ones for a brief visit. To have the Border Patrol allow the gate to open and provide these famiies to see each other or in some cases meet for the first time signals a movement toward a more humane immigration and family reunification policy.
