Artillery: Fay Ray at Shulamit Nazarian

Fay Ray (BFA '02) often says her work is about the construction of identity, which is something a lot of artists say.

KCET: Latinx Community Activism and Social Art Practices Get A Rare Spotlight in New Exhibit

 

"It’s not often that artworks that emerge out of community activism and social practices get center stage in art galleries, which makes the latest exhibit at Otis College of Art and Design a particularly unique and poignant one.

From LA Streets to Gallery Walls

"Graffiti is the foundation on which we built our artistic practices. But beyond graffiti, Los Angeles is what unifies us," says Gajin Fujita ('97 Fine Arts). The Boyle Heights native brings together 11 artists, including himself, for a crash-course in L.A. street-inspired art. Repping different neighborhoods and influenced by different cultures, their works join to create a layered, vibrant, and at times irreverent vision of Los Angeles, which couldn't come at a better time. Roll Call opens today at the L.A.
