An established artist studio in South Central Los Angeles seeks an experienced draftsperson (skilled in drawing and engraving) to join a growing team in the role of Studio Assistant. This is a temporary, project-based position for a 3-4 month term, with the possibility of growth and additional work following the completion of the project.
Through the creation of sculpture, collage, and installation, and with a spirit of collaboration and mutual support, this multi-faceted artist addresses the challenges faced by people of color and queer communities in South Central Los Angeles. Their studio is non-hierarchical, inspired by one person’s artistic vision, but driven and formed by the hands, minds, and hearts of many.
With deep ties to their neighborhood—and inextricable from their artistic practice and studio—is the artist’s community center. This space is imbued with the spirit of independence and is founded on an ethos of empowerment through self-directed action. The center is a site of support and sustainability, a hub where Black and Brown liberation and self-direction is championed and celebrated.
