2 of 3 SPArt awards

Alumnae and faculty member winners

Alumna Christina Sanchez (MFA Graduate Public Practice '12) and senior lecturer in Sculpture/New Genres Dorit Cypis are two of three winners of the inaugural grants in social practice awarded by SPArt, a new organization that supports works aimed at creating social change in the Los Angeles region. Each of three artists was awarded $10,000 toward the realization of a project that involves cooperation with communities and addresses or responds to current social issues and conditions. The SPArt vision is to fund projects that enable the artists as leaders and change-makers, encouraging lasting relationships with communities.

Christina Sanchez's project Cocina Abierta (Open Kitchen) began at Otis as her thesis investigation. This nomadic experimental "test kitchen" facilitates the fluid exchange of immigrant histories, culinary skills, and base building strategies towards the development of a worker-centered philosophy to eating ethically. www.sanchezjuarezstudio.com/
Dorit Cypis' project Conflict Revolution, in collaboration with the City of Los Angeles Department of Human Relations, teaches conflict engagement skills for Public Dialogue, a variety of local groups who struggle with cultural difference. www.doritcypis.com

In addition, Elena Rosa MFA '12  was recently awarded the Fietelson Fellowship, a $5K  grant for artists early in their careers. An exhibition of her work will take place at the Municipal Art Gallery during the annual COLA show, May 4-June 15. More than 100 artists applied for this grant.
