Family Weekend Workshops: Craft, Create, Celebrate. Create a mixed-media collage inspired by Njideka Akunyili Crosby, craft a cardboard birdhouse like Doug Aitken, or design a drawing infused with wordplay in the manner of Ed Ruscha to make your own artwork to take home. Take inspiration from artworks in Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog), iconic downtown buildings, and your own experience of the city to create an artwork that reflects your own personal Los Angeles.
Family Weekend Workshops is intended for children age 3+ and their families.

DJs: Chulita Vinyl Club
Chulita Vinyl Club (CVC) is made up of women, gender-non-conforming, non-binary, LGBTQ+, and self-identifying people of color. CVC launched in 2014, with the context of providing a safe space for empowerment, togetherness, and to utilize music and vinyl as a form of resistance against the erasure of culture. Each Chulita identifies with their own identity. They are not to be classified as one nationality or culture. Within CVC they individually identify with the following: Latinxs, Tejanxs, Chicanxs, Xicanx, Afro-Latinx, and many more. The unifying denominator is that they come together over the belief that EL DISCO ES CULTURA and they believe that is worth preserving and perpetuating.
