Monte Vista is a new artist run space in Highland Park that will host art exhibitions, conversations, events and performances. There is no "manifesto" as this space will be self-determining, but their general aims are to bring a platform for art and conversation to Los Angeles that sidesteps the influence of the commercial market. "We wish to facilitate the contribution of works of art that come from non-traditional sources, and support artworks that contribute to non-traditional dialogues."
Gardending Superfund Sites is an art project that fosters discourse around the issues of nature preservation, industry, and activism. Information and workshops with students and community groups to create a call to action to high tech industries to take responsibility for their actions.
