Our Service & Needs: since the year 2000, members of the Aztlan Media Kollective & many other volunteers have served Pueblos in resistance with Free Radio broadcasts & Community Radio workshops throughout California y M?xico.

Abstract Work by 4 Los Angeles Artists: Magda Audifred, Jos? Lopes, Ana Marini Genzon, Deborah Thomas. The Avenue 50 Studio invites the public to an art exhibit focusing on the works of four L.A. artists painting in an abstract manner. The title is because of the varied methods of our four artists, which encourages viewers to appreciate the breadth of style - from the emotional to the spiritual -- that is part of abstraction. The transformation of visual reality into pure color, line or form is the challenge our artists have taken to produce works that are emotional and free from restraints.
