Join the Los Angeles City Council at an official Proclamation Ceremony in recognition of Literature and Poetry through DCA’s 2016 Big Read Program in LA. This civic event highlights the power and place of the written word and its ability to kindle conversation and ignite imagination.
Los Angeles is a city of stories best told through our poets, writers, and artists, as exemplified by Ray Bradbury, author of the 2016 Big Read title, Fahrenheit 451, and the Los Angeles Poet Laureate, Luis Rodriguez. This special presentation in historic City Hall celebrates literacy and cultural activities, inspired by books, in classrooms and in communities citywide.
Join students, schools, and cultural partners as the Los Angeles City Council and other elected officials recognize The Big Read Program in LA. The event will be capped off with a special reading by Los Angeles Poet Laureate, Luis Rodriguez, and pop-up artmaking by Self Help Graphics and Art’s Barrio Mobile Art Studio. Guests will have an opportunity to create unique screen-printed posters inspired by The Big Read using stencil cutting techniques with artists, Dewey Tafoya and Martha Carrillo.

Borderline explores the notion of the border – both as a metaphor for our lived experience and as a tool to undermine the certainty of the territories it defines. By occupying the in-between space that exists between two distinct conditions, we defiantly trespass into adjacent space, breakdown conventional barriers, and explore new territories. An interactive, self-guided virtual tour of the exhibition will be released on Friday, January 22nd at angelsgateart.org with gallery appointments pending the guidance of local and state…
