Marissa Magdelena’s workshop was inspired by the exhibition Perfect Likeness: Photography and Composition and asked participants to explore composition and character through movement.




Michele’s workshop was inspired by Mark Bradford’s painting “Rebuild South Central” on display at the Hammer Museum in his solo exhibition Scorched Earth, and encouraged participants to ring a bell and announce into a microphone how they would improve their neighborhood.
