Lucas Museum of Narrative Art: Making Masks for South LA

The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is partnering with LA-based artists and artisans to sew 1,500 masks for local organizations in immediate need.

Since we are dedicated to the art of storytelling, we invite you to join us for a series of online “sewing circles.” Sewing circles have long been spaces for free expression, activism, and storytelling across generations—especially for women—with open discussions and community building. Artists/makers will be in conversation with Lucas Museum Managing Director of Education,  Nenette Luarca-Shoaf, about the role of sewing in their work, how they have re-imagined their artistic practice during this time, their family histories with sewing, and more.

Want to watch? Follow the Lucas Museum on Facebook and tune in on our page on May 15 – 12 pm PT, and May 16 – 11 am PT, to watch the live conversations (a Facebook account is not needed to watch the talks).
