This past Thursday I volunteered as a photographer at the “INTO ACTION” exhibit. It’s a large scale pop-up art exhibition, cultural gathering and community organizing action hub in Los Angeles, (near the LA Historic Park) featuring hundreds of inspiring works of art.
Instead of photographing the art, especially made by more well known artists (I see you Shepard Fairey) I focused on people observing the art. Besides the gallery, they have powerful panels, workshops, and live performances to help you turn ideas into action.
I saw a panel with the Olympian fencer, Ibtihaj Muhammad speaking about her activism! Folks were making posters in preparation to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March, that’s taking place today! I invite you to check out Into Action after the march or instead of going to the march.
It’s FREE, open to the public and they got events going on all day.
Watch out for the sound of glass shattering every 5 minutes (you’ll see what I mean)
Show up for Democracy and Justice.
Pulled from the site: “INTO ACTION brings together hundreds of our nation’s most prolific and talented visual artists, young activists, musicians, poets, policymakers and community leaders to face the pain and beauty of the year past, while we plan and organize for the year to come.”
