Antelope Valley Art Outpost is a creative placemaking project that supports regional vitality through innovative, artist-driven projects in the unincorporated communities of Littlerock and Sun Village. In creative placemaking, public, private, nonprofit and community sectors partner to strategically shape the physical and social character of a place by leveraging creative assets to support community development.

The Transgressive Act of Holding Hands on the River

By Carren Jao 
 
Over the past few months, the Los Angeles River has been a political issue. It has been the center of debates about social equality, health, and fiscal feasibility. The Los Angeles River has been so buried in these laden terms that it's easy to forget this waterway is first and foremost a place where real people gather, where they seek shelter legally or illegally, where residents come to simply commune with others.

An  art-making project with former prison inmates, an interactive broadcast at a Los Angeles swap meet and a collective that will create a new space for women to learn and create.

INFORMATION/TIPS FOR FUTURE STUDENTS?
Take care of each other. Being an artist is a hard road. The only way to succeed with sanity and joy is to support one other and avoid jealousy.

 

Hometown?
Bogotá, Colombia, and Edison, N.J.

 

Why Otis?
I was looking for a program that would support my interests in both art and activism, and Otis was the right choice.
