Are you an artist? Do you enjoy the arts? Do you support the arts? If so, that’s great, because we do, too!

For years, Big Sunday volunteers have supported the arts in all kinds of ways. Now, with the art list, artists and arts organizations can post and announce their events – concerts, exhibits, screenings, readings, performances – to everyone in the Big Sunday community. The only requirement is that somehow, some way, at some time, you’ve helped somebody else through a Big Sunday project.

If you have something you’d like to post, submit it HERE.

Chapters: Book Arts in Southern California

January 29 - May 7, 2017   ONGOING EVENT

Craft & Folk Art Museum, 5814 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323.937.4230

Although Los Angeles/Southern California is often overshadowed by New York and San Francisco as a books arts center in the United States, the region has a long history of innovation in the medium. This exhibition will explore the development of book arts in Southern California starting in the 1960-70s to today. The exhibition will investigate the range of works that can be defined as “book arts” with an emphasis on innovative formats, hand-made works, and small editions. Additionally, an onsite bookmaking shop will be activated with demos and workshops by exhibition artists, area book arts instructors, and local students.

The US-Mexico Border: Place, Imagination, and Possibility

September 10, 2017 - January 7, 2018   ONGOING EVENT

Craft & Folk Art Museum, 5814 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323.937.4230

Since the 1990s, the US-Mexico border has become an important site for creative exploration of issues related to emigration, immigration, labor conditions, hybrid identities, and transformation. The US-Mexico Border: Place, Imagination, and Possibility presents the work of contemporary artists who explore the border as a physical reality (place), as a subject (imagination), and as a site for production and solution (possibility). The inclusion of artists from various disciplines, including design, architecture, sculpture, painting, and photography, reflects the ways in which contemporary artists and designers themselves cross disciplinary borders. Many of the artists featured in the exhibition pursue a creative problem-solving process sometimes described as “design thinking,” which involves invention, social engagement, and the task of making. The exhibition will include work by artists and designers such as Teddy Cruz, Adrian Esparza, Consuelo Jimenez Underwood, and Ana Serrano.

Young wife Melody has never been to a funeral — until her husband dies in a plane crash,” press notes state. “Expected to instantly assume proper widowhood, Melody is left to wonder, what’s the right way to grieve? Fortunately, her mother-in-law is a professional. Widow, that is. Under her guidance, Melody must try her best to be a good little widow.
