A People’s Art History of Los Angeles with Nicholas Lampert 3/16

23 02 2014

The Llano Del Rio Collective is pleased to host author/historian/artist Nicolas Lampert for two events in relationship to his new book A People’s Art History of The United States. First will be a public gathering, mapping, and preliminary creation of A People’s Art History of Los Angeles; second a reading by Lampert from his new book. The events will occur at 6 then 7 pm at the Public School In Los Angeles (951 Chung King Road 90012), Sunday the 16th of March.


With the gathering and mapping of A People’s Art History of Los Angeles we will collect and share historic sites and  art projects that can constitute a shared people’s art history of LA. Lampert’s book discusses projects of ASCO, SPARC/Judith Baca, Women House, and In Morning And In Rage. But what other art projects constitute our shared progressive/radical/vangardist public art history here in LA? Certainly Tongva petroglyphs, Watts Towers, The Peace Tower, and Tierra De Culebra Park; perhaps placas in the Arroyo, Not A Cornfield, the DIY bike lanes that appeared on Glendale Blvd a few years back, the Peace And Justice Center, Art In Action, or what else? Come to the Public School at 6:00 pm and contribute to our creation of a map/guide of some sorts (TBD) of  A Peoples Art History of Los Angeles with Nicholas Lampert- to be followed by a reading by Nicolas at 7:00.
