KaleidoLA: Can Art Stop a War and Save the Planet?
Loyola Marymount University's Art & Art History Department is hosting KaleidoLA, a speaker series exploring a range of interdisciplinary and intersecting experiences and pathways in the art world and in Los Angeles.
Don't miss CSPG Founder and Executive Director Carol Wells's keynote presentation, "Can Art Stop a War and Save the Planet?" happening Friday, January 22nd at 12:15 PM inside LMU's Murphy Recital Hall.
Carol A. Wells is an activist, art historian, curator, lecturer, and writer. She has been collecting posters and producing political poster art exhibitions on a variety of human rights themes since 1981. Trained as a medievalist at UCLA, she taught the history of art and architecture for thirteen years at CSU Fullerton until a poster changed her life. In 1988, Carol founded the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG), an educational and research archive with more than 80,000 social movement posters from the 19th century to the present. She believes that the power of graphics can combat public apathy and feelings of helplessness, and help open up a truly democratic arena for political debate.
This event is free and open to the public.
