Souvenirs of Progress: A look back to March Forward…
Art, memorabilia, photography & writing reflecting on the 1970s
Souvenirs of Progress “Teach-In” art show & forum at Lobby Gallery. Visit during one of the walk-through hours to hear the accompanying audio of speeches, news clips, poetry and music from the protest era focusing on the late 1960s through early 1970s.
Walk-through and drop-in days are on Thursdays from 2-6pm on June 15, 22 & 29, or by appointment. Please get in touch if anyone wants to schedule any visits, group talks or has materials to contribute!
Opening night reception on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at DTLA Art Walk and on view through the end of June. The materials will be up on the wall, but the audio speeches, news clips, poetry and music are part of the experience, so I can set that up if I know people are going over.
