SELF HELP GRAPHICS & ART
SELECTS FIVE LOS ANGELES PRINTMAKING AMBASSADORS FOR AN
INTERNATIONAL PRINTMAKING EXCHANGE WITH CUBA


Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG), in partnership with the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) and the Richardson Center for Global Engagement, will send a team of five LA artists, this October, to the Taller Experimental de Gráfica (Cuba) for the first printmaking exchange of its kind.

The Richardson Center, which promotes diplomacy through alternative methods, has initiated and funded this historic cultural and artistic exchange project for SHG, the forty-plus year old arts institution serving the Latino community of Los Angeles. The selected artists will work at the Taller Experimental de Gráfica in La Habana, Cuba, each producing a fine art print in a limited edition of 30.

The following five Los Angeles artists, and an alternate, have been selected by SHG from a competitive, national pool of applicants, to participate in the printmaking exchange:

Margaret “Quica” Alarcón, Rogelio Gutierrez, Dalila Paola Mendez, Delilah Montoya, Miyo Stevens and alternate Ernesto Yerena.

In early 2016, the second part of the exchange will take place as SHG hosts the following five Cuban artists: Yamylis Brito, Carlos del Toro, Dairén Fernández, Aliosky García and Octavio Irving.
