An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. Aug. 26 at the Craft in America Center, 8415 W. Third St., for “Mano-Made: New Expression in Craft by Jaime Guerrero.”
Los Angeles artist Jaime Guerrero is one of few in the world who sculpts life-sized figures in glass.
For the exhibition, Guerrero will fill the gallery with an installation of a group of blown glass, life-sized children that will represent children who are being detained at the border each day. These glass children will be batting at a suspended glass piñata that will be embellished with vivid papier mache streamers. The installation is meant to humanize and universalize the experience of these young immigrants and initiate discussion about the critical challenges they face. Guerrero is a graduate of California College of the Arts in Oakland, and he lives and works in Los Angeles.
This exhibition is part of The Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA (Latin American & Latino Art in LA) initiative.
Guerrero will give an artist talk at 4 p.m. Sept. 23 at the center. RSVPs can be made to the talk via email@example.com.
