Self Help Graphics & Art
Self Help Graphics & Art is a community visual arts center that was started by a small group of artists working out of a garage in East Los Angeles in the 70s. Its goal was to create art that showcased the cultural heart of the Los Angeles Chicano community. The community embraced this idea and many more artists got involved over the years. It has achieved national recognition for its contribution to Chicano art and cultural awareness. Artists can use the printmaking facilities and there are community outreach programs to draw more people into the world of arts. The on-site Galeria Otra Vez presents local artists to the community. There's also a shop selling prints, artwork and crafts.
