  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2013

Father Gregory Boyle will share stories and participate in an intimate conversation at the Ben Maltz Gallery/Otis College of Art and Design on February 9, 2013 from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM.

Homeboy Industries, founded by Father Gregory Boyle, is now the largest gang intervention, re-hab and re-entry program in the United States. Father Boyle was born in Los Angeles and is the author of the New York Times bestselling book, “Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion.” He has received numerous honorary degrees, awards and recognitions including the Civic Medal of Honor, the California Peace Prize, Humanitarian of the Year from "Bon Appetit" Magazine, and in 2011 was inducted into the California Hall of Fame.

Otis College of Art and Design’s Ben Maltz Gallery exhibition, "Bridging Homeboy Industries: Fabian Debora, Alex Kizu, and Juan Carlos Muñoz Hernandez," (on view through March 23) brings together artists who share roots in the East L.A. neighborhood of Boyle Heights, a close-knit community beset by poverty and violence. Though their paths and practices are unique, each has benefited from the services of Homeboy Industries. The artists featured in this exhibition all credit Father Boyle for supporting and encouraging them as artists.

“Father "G" was the first one who taught me to see my art not as a path towards delinquency and incarceration, but rather as a path out of the violence and hopelessness of gang life,” says Fabian Debora.
