AGCC proudly presents Bridging San Pedro: Visual Literacy as Community Practice, an exhibition that highlights the community's relationships to the land and sea.

Curated by jill moniz, this project extends visual literacy and action to empower community and place. Artists and community members come together to honor the past, articulate the complexities of the present and forge a visually communal, participatory language and making that bridges San Pedro.

Artists June Edmonds, Cole James, Blue McRight, and Alexis Slickelman will exhibit works that intersect along themes that bridge the port and communities of San Pedro. Collaborative works, resulting from the artists’ community workshops held at AGCC this fall, will be an integral part of the exhibition.

Join us for the opening reception on Saturday January 18th, 2020, from 12-4pm, which will feature presentations by the Surfrider Foundation and Captain Charles Moore of the Alguita, ocean research vessel.

Bridging San Pedro will be on view and free to the public in the AGCC gallery Monday - Saturday, 10-4pm, through April 4th, 2020.

This project is supported, in part, by the Port of Los Angeles through the Community Investment Grant Program.
