“Self Help Graphics is a magical place, where ever it gathers artists committed to social change—in a building on 1st Street or Cesar Chavez, at a park, or school. Art and artists make the magic, and I am honored to be a part of this legacy.”
Growing up I admired and appreciated art, but it wasn’t until I first visited Self Help Graphics 23 years ago that I learned to love art. Unlike any other art I had seen before the colors, themes, images, and social messages resonated with me.
Art is a common human expression across cultures. It is a way to express creative ideas, share information and celebrate traditions. Whether it’s in the form of a painting, sculpture, music, dance, or architecture, art enriches our lives providing a lasting reflection of people and their heritage. Self Help Graphics and Art plays a critical role in the art world. Along with Bank of America, I am passionate about supporting the arts and encourage Angelenos to participate in the many activities offered by Self Help Graphics & Art.
Self Help Graphics & Art not only nurtures artists in their professional journey, but it celebrates our unique Chicano voice through creative expression.
I discovered SHG in college, both in Chicano Studies courses and involvement in student groups; the images had a powerful influence on me, one that impacted both my personal and political identity. It was that early introduction to SHG that continues to inspire me as a collector.
“Arte es vida. Self Help Graphics as the original incubator for art and artists is as essential to life as the air we breathe. It’s that simple.”
