A LAUNCH LA OPEN CALL GROUP EXHIBITION @The Korean Cultural Center, Los Angeles
August 17 to August 30, 2018
An intersection occurs when two or more paths cross: where cultures, histories, ambitions or chance converge, creating defining moments of decision, denial or opportunity. For some, the paths are riddled with obstacles or even blocked, while the way is smoothed for others. The opportunity is fleeting for some, but can last a lifetime for others. “Intersection” is a call to artists who respond to these diverging and converging courses in their work. This exhibition aims to brings together artists from across Southern California whose practices express components of intersectionality, privilege, choices, culture, chance, or events.
LAUNCH LA, in partnership with The Korean Cultural Center, invites all Southern California visual artists to submit work for a juried exhibition and competition at The Korean Cultural Center, 5505 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, August 17 to August 30, 2018.
Call for artists is open!
Over $300,000+ in awards to artists!
On December 2, 2015, a terrorist attack in the City of San Bernardino left 14 dead, 23 injured (including two law enforcement first responders), and innumerable others traumatized. The attack was a direct assault on County of San Bernardino (County) employees in the Department of Public Health’s Environmental Health Services Division. Local, state and federal public safety partners responded to the incident, killing the suspects within hours of the initial attack; two members of law enforcement were wounded in the shootout.
The County wishes to honor the victims of this senseless act of violence with a memorial. The December 2nd Memorial Committee composed of survivors, family of victims, County officials, and first responders is leading the effort to build a memorial. The County has retained Community Arts, Inc., a San Francisco- based arts organization, to assist the Committee by issuing an Invitational Call for Submittals to interested artists, designers, architects and creative teams.

Arts Connection is working with the San Bernardino County Museum to develop a popup exhibit for March 3 – 31st. The theme is, “Life in the Cracks,” an idea that emerged from an event we are doing with artists collective Fallen Fruit at the museum on March 10th.
