PAUL VON BLUM, Senior Lecturer in African American Studies and Communication at UCLA
will discuss his book, Creative Souls : African American Artists in Greater Los Angeles.
This volume focuses on 21 contemporary Los Angeles-area visual artists who have made the region a premier center for African American art. These artists work in every medium: painting, murals, sculpture, assemblage, installations, photography, video, mask-making, and other forms. Together, their efforts have made powerful and enduring contributions to the cultural life of Southern California and to the nation as a whole.
The event is free and open to the public. Parking can be purchased at Parking Structure 5 (on Charles E Young Drive N). UCLA is a Smoke and Tobacco-Free campus.
