In addition, our galleries will present two new exhibitions: FA4 Collective’s GANAS DE EXISTIR!, a multimedia exhibition, and Direct from the Classroom, a selection of children’s art from the Artists-in-Classrooms program.

This spring, AGCC is excited to announce two partner workshops, one in partnership with the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) in Long Beach, and the other with San Pedro based Machine Studio C.U.T.S Crew.

Please join us for art, food, music and fun.

Community Class Demonstrations & Workshops:
Japanese Archery and Belly Dancing performances will take place in Building H. Stop by the Print Studio (Building E) to catch a demonstration of various printmaking techniques.

Our Artist-teachers, from the Artists-in-Classrooms program, will lead an all ages workshop in Building G, where visitors can create a unique souvenir.

Artist and teacher Amber Stucke will conduct a plant drawing and sketching workshop outdoors on the AGCC grounds.

Partner Workshops:
Angels Gate Cultural Center is proud to work in partnership with the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) and Machine Studio to offer two new workshops this Open Studios Day.

In partnership with MOLAA and their current exhibition Chiachio & Giannone: Celebrating Diversity, we are excited to host a fabric art workshop with the Argentinian artistic duo Chiachio & Giannone. Collaborate with these visionary artists and contribute to constructing the largest Pride Flag in the history of southern California.

In addition, we are proud to partner with Machine Studio and C.U.T.S. Crew (Clean Up The Streets) to present their Mobile Graffiti Yard. With the mission to provide safe, legal venues for underserved communities to create, share and enjoy graffiti art, AGCC visitors will create and share graffiti art here at the event.

Join us for the opening reception of FA4 Collective’s GANAS DE EXISTIR!, a multimedia exhibition featuring artworks that explore themes of identity, erasure and visibility. Curated by FA4 Collective member Gloria Sanchez, the show will feature 21 emerging artists and performers from across the Los Angeles region, FA4 Collective members, and Common Threads makers via Justice LA and art community members.

The opening will offer live music, spoken word, and performance works by Jessa Calderon, Brianna Mims, Jasmine Nyende, Gloria Plaza, and DJ Fuyu.

In the downstairs gallery we are pleased to present Direct from the Classroom: Works by Young Artists & Poets, an exhibition of student artwork created in the Artists-in-Classrooms program.

In his first solo presentation, Komla promotes genuine acceptance of oneself. In a world where we are constantly stimulated, Komla uses his work to express what silence makes him feel.
