LA Plaza's Interns Explore LA's Diverse Art Scene
This summer, LA Plaza’s interns Saul (Public Programs Intern), Melissa (Curatorial Intern), and Oscar (Communications Intern) are taking you on an artistic journey of different Los Angeles neighborhoods. Their weekly blog series explores and highlights Chicanx/Latinx* presence and representation (or lack thereof) in art spaces across the city. Los Angeles is laden with art galleries, museums, murals, and graffiti, and it is their goal to showcase the past and ongoing Latinx and Chicanx contributions to LA's diverse art scene.
*We use “Chicanx/Latinx” as a gender-inclusive umbrella term for Latinos, Latinas, Chicanas, Chicanos, and nonbinary Chicanx/Latinxs. See: http://www.latinorebels.com/2015/12/05/the-case-for-latinx-why-intersect...
