The Power and Transformation of One Resource, Lint

Art in the Park is excited to welcome artist Veronica De Jesus, @veronicadejesusart, art for a  series of workshops organized around resources.

The first two workshops on February 15 and 22 will focus on the transformation of lint, the byproduct of washing our clothes.

We will spend time with this discarded material, lint. Lint will be our powersource, putting both a light on both the fragility and power of resources. We will look into lint as an examination into perspective and human perception of what lint means as a resource.

These first two workshops will focus on the process of working with lint, and turning lint into paper. We will expand on ideas collectively.

We will wear gloves while exploring this material. Ideas generated from this workshop will lead into the next. Come take part!

RSVP here, or on our website.

Veronica De Jesus is a visual artist raised in several American cities. She illustrates life as an American, in all its varied splendor. Drawing on pop culture icons, sports, heroes and villains, and more, she draws our complex world into focus. Her Memorial Drawings, an ongoing series of illustrations complemented with text, honor the many people who have influenced our collective culture and reflect on loss and mourning. Her work also explores identity and the ways we hide and reveal elements of our personalities. Her work has been shown in galleries in San Francisco, Berkeley, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. She has a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from UC Berkeley.

Art in the Park is a proud partner site with the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. @culture_la

Black, Brown & Beige

In 1943 Duke Ellington performed for the first time the symphony Black, Brown and Beige at Carnage Hall. Ellington described it as, “a parallel to the history of the American Negro”. The title of the symphony referred to the mistaken assertion that African-Americans can be categorized by a single color. In his tittle, Ellington was highlighting an experience that was broad in spectrum and experience. Conversely, Latinos also share the same generalizations as African- Americans as evidenced by the various…

Betye Saar: Drifting Toward Twilight

Renowned American artist Betye Saar’s large-scale work Drifting Toward Twilight—recently commissioned by The Huntington—is a site-specific installation that features a 17-foot-long vintage wooden canoe and found objects, including birdcages, antlers, and natural materials harvested by Saar from The Huntington’s grounds.   “Betye Saar: Drifting Toward Twilight” transforms an entire room in the Scott Galleries into what the artist calls a “cocoon-like environment.” The walls are painted in an oceanic blue gradient, featuring a poem by Saar and phases of the moon.…

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: Speaking to Falling Seeds

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist whose practice considers Black image making as a site of protest, contestation, affirmation, and possibility. At CAAM, Fazlalizadeh will present a series of portraits of Black Angelenos wheat-pasted across the atrium’s monumental walls. Based on photographs and conversations that took place this spring while the artist was living in Los Angeles, the portraits ask how safety is inferred, built, and felt for the city’s Black residents.
