Artists and Speakers Series

Judith F. Baca is a native Angeleno, visual artist, arts activist, community leader and educator best known for her large-scale murals. Her signature piece, The Great Wall of Los Angeles, is one of the city's true cultural landmarks and one of the country's most notable monuments to interracial harmony, produced with the participation of more that 400 youth, 40 ethnic historians and hundreds of community members.

In this lecture, Baca discusses art as a tool for social change and self-transformation that involves extensive community dialogue and participation.

Admission is free.
