Wednesday, October 8—Friday, December 19

Judy Baca is a world-renowned painter and muralist, community arts pioneer, scholar and educator. Currently a professor of Chicano/a Studies and World Arts and Cultures at UCLA, she was the founder of the first City of Los Angeles Mural Program in 1974, which evolved into a community arts organization known as the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC). Baca’s murals and public artworks reflect the lives and concerns of populations that have been historically disenfranchised, including women, the working poor, youth, the elderly and immigrant communities. She is one of the most remarkable public artists for social transformation in modern American history.
