As the academic year 2017-2018 comes to a close with series of Convocations, the Cal State LA Fine Arts Gallery will start the summer program from the 1st of June with a month-long Words Uncaged Project, “Re-Enter, Re-Think, Re-Store: Reforming Our Prisons & Healing Our Community through Art, Dialogue & Tech.” The exhibitions will be a creative, interactive, displays of incarcerated artists, writers, students and poets at California State Prison, Lancaster, and the portraits of inmates created by the artist F. Scott Shafer to critically engage in discourse with the audiences. The symposium includes panels and presentations of topic related to the project. Followed by the Words Uncaged Project, the gallery will host A Survey Exhibition 1974 – 2018 by Mr. La Mont Westmoreland (a distinguished alumnus) and the gallery is in planning the gallery’s first “WE ARE LA” Friends/Fund Raising event, which will be a sale of donated art by alumni, professional artists, collectors, faculty, and students.
