Lawndale thanks its many members!
While our most recent proposal deadline has passed and the retablos for our annual Día de los Muertos exhibition are now hung, we've recently heard about some really great opportunities from neighboring arts organizations for local artists and designers and we thought we'd share them with you. Sorry for the late notice on a few of these. Best of luck! We hope to see you at Lawndale soon.
