Museum of Latin American Art is reopening with Judy Baca on July 14, Wednesday through Sunday. It is a retrospective exhibit and the first comprehensive work of the internationally renowned Chicana muralist, public intellectual, and community activist Judy Baca.
Judy Baca is a painter, muralist, community arts pioneer, and scholarly educator who has been teaching in the UC system for more than 30 years. She was also the founder of the first Los Angeles City Mural program in 1974. The program later developed into a non-profit Social and Public Art Resource Center.
Baca is engaged in creating sites of public memory within historically disenfranchised communities since 1976. She also serves as the SPARC's artistic director while employing digital technology to co-create collaborative murals at the UCLA/SPARC Cesar Chavez Digital Mural Lab. You can get to witness her exhibit and women artists in the MOLAA collection gallery.
