A portion of the SWM has been converted to a warehouse to store the SWM Collection. See the result on this tour. There will be a discussion of the importance of the SWM to Northeast LA and the current effort of the Autry National Center to take the SWM name, collection and exhibits all over to the Autry?s Griffith Park location.

This tour is offered just prior to the meeting where the Autry National Center will unveil some plan to change the use of the Mount Washington site from a museum to some ?new cultural use.? That meeting will be the following week This tour is supported by the Southwest Museum Coalition.


Public Meeting about Southwest Museum
Tuesday, September 19, 7p
Franklin High School Auditorium, 820 N Ave 54

The City of Los Angeles appears to have placed the future of the SWM back into the hands of the Autry National Center, abdicating an activist role that included moderating five recent "public input" meetings and mediating a half-dozen City Hall sit-downs between community representatives and Autry lawyers and executives.

The City's Human Relations Commission has announced that Autry executives will discuss their vision for Mount Washington's SWM at a public meeting. The Commission's executive director, Rabbi Allen Freehling, will serve as moderator for the meeting.

No representatives of the community, the Southwest Museum Coalition, or other parties to the ongoing discussions regarding the Museum have been invited to take a formal role in the discussion.

For additional information regarding the meeting, or to express your thoughts on the city's role in the Autry's "public process," the City has directed callers to Gary De La Rosa or Patricia Villasenor at 213-978-1660.

There are two highly entertaining literary events by gifted women writers and poets this weekend. On Friday Yvette Johnson, Liz Gonzalez & Mona Jean Cedar will be presenting. On Sunday those reading from their works are Pat Alderete, Consuelo Flores, Reina Prado & Maria Elena Gaitan.



About the Writers and Poets

Yvette Johnson has written her first two chapbooks this year, which are entitled Poem and Other Poems and Bluffs. Liz Gonz?lez is working on a novel, which will contain poetry. She is the author of the limited edition chapbook, Beneath Bone, published by Manifest Press. Mona Jean Cedar composes & choreographs poetry in spoken word with the world's sign languages, adds her husband's original music and creates multi-communicative works of art.


Pat Alderete writes about the beauty and brutality of barrio life, rendering the complex inner worlds and strict social hierarchies of a community too seldom observed in literature. Consuelo Flores presents her work in a unique personal performance style,
poetic illustrations of life that reflect family and culture mixed with social perspective.
Mar?a Elena Gait?n is an interdisciplinary artist who utilizes her extraordinary musical and oratorical skills to examine cross-cultural, race, gender, and class issues, as they affect Latinos in the United States. Reina Alejandra Prado (aka Santa Perversa) challenges taboos imposed on Latina women by delving into the realm of the erotic in her published poetry collection Santa Perversa and Other Erotic.


The exhibit includes works by Diane Gamboa, Margaret Garcia, Patssi Valdez, Linda Arreola, Mari Cardenas, Judith Duran, Simone Gad, CiCi Gonzalez, Fei Lu, Poli Marichal, Isabel Martinez, Lucia Maya, & Audri Phillips, each a powerhouse in her own right. The artwork is as diverse as the worlds of the artists are unique.

Valdez offers windows to other realities, unfolding secrets, & memories of quotidian Chicano life. Gad & Gamboa share bold personal expressions with strong touches of pattern & design. Garcia graciously defines herself & her community while Gonzalez presents both narrative figuration & gravity-free abstraction. Arreola combines social commentary with spiritual awareness. The potent works of Marichal & Lu also address vital issues of the day. Both are influenced by their families. Marichal?s father having been a Spanish Civil refugee & Puerto Rico's most famous theatrical scene designer & Lu?s grandfather a famous Chinese propaganda artist during the reign of Mao Zedong. Maya is a brilliant Mexican lithographer whose work is heavily influenced by dream structuring. Similarly, Phillips produces dreamscape-like oeuvres "where the outer continues into the inner, the visible into the invisible?.

Group Exhibits: Tijuana Crude & Politick
Solo Exhibit:After Paradise: Clayton Campbell
Artists? Reception: Sunday, September 17, 2 ? 5p
September 16 ? November 26
Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, 4800 Hollywood Blvd, LA, CA
323.644.6269 cadmag@sbcglobal.net

The City of LA Department of Cultural Affairs is pleased to announce Tijuana Crude, Politick, and After Paradise: Clayton Campbell, three exhibits simultaneously presented at the Municipal Art Gallery. Punctuated by political resolve, these three exhibits work together to highlight prevailing sentiments and issues finding their way into common discourse. Music will be provided by The Susie Hanson Latin Jazz Band, courtesy of the Recording Industries? Music Performance Trust Fund. The Reception is free & open to the public.

While American political debate centers around immigration and the question of borders, Tijuana Crude, asserts the undisputed connection between neighbors in Mexico and the megalopolis that extends from Los Angeles to the Mexican border. This group exhibition of contemporary artists from Tijuana, Mexico, will showcase the work of Mely Barrag?n, Franco M?ndez Calvillo, Tania Candiani, Roberto C?rdova, Antonio Escalante, Gabriela Escarcaga, Charles Glaubitz, Aldo Guerra, Alfredo Gutierrez, Julio Orozco, Daniel Ruanova, Irma Sofia Poeter, Roberto Rosique, and Ricardo Sanders. Curated by Adolfo V. Nodal, Tijuana Crude introduces the vibrant, bohemian art scene developing in Tijuana and reinforces the absence of borders in art production. On Tijuanan culture, Al Nodal states: ?Today, as the California National Guard is militarizing the United States/ Mexico border and a $2 billion fence is being planned, the Tijuana culture appears boundless and ready to expand its influence northward and beyond.? Tijuana Crude will be exhibited in the North Gallery.

Politick, a group exhibition of SoCal artists inspired by political events both past and present, will showcase the work of Judy Baca, Mariona Barkus, Sandow Birk, Robbie Conal, Einar and Jamex de la Torre, Zig Gron & Ben Sakoguchi. Curated by Mark Steven Greenfield, Director of the Municipal Art Gallery, Politick is a stimulating continuation of the dialogue between contemporary political thought and art, and features an eclectic array of visual media?from pop-culturally iconic forms such as video and satirical posters to more traditional forms such as glass and painting. Politick will be exhibited in the South Gallery.

After Paradise: Clayton Campbell, a solo exhibition of photography based on Dante?s The Divine Comedy, will showcase the work of Clayton Campbell. Drawing on the themes of Dante?s 13th century Inferno, Purgatorio & Paradiso, written while in exile, Campbell focuses his series of 45 photographs on his own journey of consciousness and places it within the context of LA. After Paradise: Clayton Campbell will be exhibited in the Project Room.

Feliz Dia De Los Muertos, Ginette Rondeau, Curator & Editor of the Olvera-Street.com newsletter is delighted to announce their ?Annual Dia De Los Muertos Juried Exhibition.? The entry form and details of this exhibition are posted at www.Olvera-Street.com . The deadline for artists? submissions is September. Heartfelt works of art are being solicited: altars, painting, sculptures, photography, etchings, mix-media, and more. It is essential that the work represent the true meaning of Dia De Los Muertos.

Ideally, some of the altar entries would include interactive elements that would allow public participation. For example, if you created a personal altar for someone who died of cancer, then you could dedicate that altar to whoever inspired it and also to all cancer victims. Many of their visitors in the past have been very grateful for the opportunity to put photos or simply write names of their beloved on the altar. It has been quite touching and it gives the gallery a life of its own.

She is looking forward to all the wonderful entries to create an exciting place to journey. As you may already know, the exhibit has been a precious place for their visitors and the countless school children that attend. She has been very proud that ro share this treasured and very loving tradition. The exhibit has been a place where their guests can feel free to speak of their beloved, to reflect and to heal. It is a wonderful way to honor our beloved and a beautiful experience to share with others.
