For the past 10 weeks, 16 AVPA art students have been working with artist/set designer, Janne Larsen, sponsored by Front and Center’s Artist-In-Residence program in association with Center Theatre Group.
AVPA art students created 32 paintings inspired by the characters from the script, “Emma and the Suzies,” and developed both a “dangerous and safe” version of their chosen characters. Dangerous women represent those in society who dare to be unique and stand up for their beliefs. Safe women are those who let others dictate their lives and lack passion and desire to challenge the norm.
On Thursday, December 10, AVPA Art students will be given another unique opportunity to share their work at Center Theatre Group’s costume/prop shop in Boyle Heights. CTG granted permission for the students to create a public art piece on the outside of their shop door for permanent viewing. Additionally, their original artwork will be displayed during a special reading of “Emma & The Suzies” with the playwright, Anthony Aguilar.
Please attend this special reception to celebrate the AVPA art students and to thank Janne, Anthony, CTG, and Front and Center!
The reception will be held Thursday, December 10 at Center Theatre Group’s Costume Prop Shop, at 2856 E. 11th St., LA 90023.
