The CSUDH campus in South Los Angeles was established in 1960 with a mission to provide education, scholarship and service that are accessible and transformative. The goal of the Department of Art and Design is to provide students with a rich and rigorous arts education through programs in Studio Art, Design and Art History. The University Art Gallery is a laboratory for contemporary art and design practices for many cultures.
The PAA grant will support the Praxis Artist-in-Residence exhibition Pau S. Pescador, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The total project will run from September 2022-April 2023 with the exhibition on display from January – April 2023. Praxis is an art engagement program founded by Devon Tsuno to provide a framework for bringing artists, students, and community members together to explore the history and social conditions of South Los Angeles. Pescador’s work will examine the effects of the summer Olympic Games on its host cities and citizens.
