The Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM) at East Los Angeles College is proud to announce the opening of What Would You Say?: Activist Graphics from the Los Angeles County Museum of Artexhibition on Saturday, March 25, from 6:00 p.m.8:00 p.m. Enjoy the free exhibition, specialty cocktails (for guests 21 and over) and DJ sets by dublab during our opening reception. The exhibition features more than 60 objects from LACMA’s collection; as well as four additional prints by California-based artists from the Chicano Moratorium and early Asian American activism, selected by VPAM, to demonstrate how designers and artists championed civil rights, opposed wars and injustice, and pressed for change. “We’re excited to be partnering with LACMA on this exhibition, and we’re thrilled to be able to include posters that illustrate the geographical specificity of activism in our neighborhoods on the eastside and the ways Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities are fighting for social justice,” said VPAM Museum Director, Steve Wong.

Activist Graphics from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will remain on view through June 24, 2023. VPAM is located on the campus of East Los Angeles College at 1301 Avenida Cesar Chavez in Monterey Park, California.
