Self Help Graphics & Art

Pasadena Art Alliance

Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) is the leading non-profit visual arts center serving the predominantly Latino community of East Los Angeles.  SHG’s mission is to develop and nurture Latino artists in the production, distribution and interpretation of prints and other art media through its multi-disciplinary, inter-generational programming.

The funds will be used in support of nine Native American artists whose work will be exhibited at Atelier LIX: Mini Wiconi, a title which translate to “water is life.”  Los Angeles County contains the largest concentration of Native Americans in the entire United States and this project pulls together Native American artists to respond to the preservation and conservation of our water sources through dialogue and ultimately printmaking. The artists prints will be exhibited in the 2017-2018 Annual Print Fair & Exhibition at Self Help Graphics and Art.
