"Walls That Unite" fundraiser

"Walls That Unite" Holds Art Fundraiser for Mexico’s Recent Earthquake

"Walls That Unite" is a nonprofit organization created to perform community outreach in both the United States and Mexico formed out of a study abroad program sponsored by the university. While abroad, the students studied murals, traveled to Mexico City and did service learning projects in a small town called Ojos de Agua. These projects prompted faculty director Rose Adams to create "Walls That Unite."

After a magnitude 7.1 earthquake devastated Mexico City in September, "Walls That Unite," along with other CSUF students and alumni, organized an art sale fundraiser as a call to action. The organization raised $1,224 for relief efforts during its fundraiser onThursday, September 29 in the Exit Gallery from 5 to 8 p.m.

Join the next study abroad in Mexico opportunity!

Seminar artists

SEMINAR: Latin American and Latino Art in Dialogue with "Los Angeles Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA"

Co-taught by Professors of Art Elisa Mandell and Joanna Roche, this seminar examines the politics of art, art history, and museum display through the lens of "Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA," a series of thematically linked exhibitions focusing on the exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles.

The seminar will take place on-site at area museums, and in some cases will include private tours of exhibitions led by curators. The exhibitions represent art from a wide temporal and geographic range, including art of the Ancient, Colonial, Modern, and Contemporary Americas.

Students will visit exhibitions that explore the ethnic and racial diversity of populations in the Americas, as well as exhibitions that consider queer and feminist perspectives.
