CLAREMONT, California - January 26, 2018


Ken Gonzales-Day’s 
photographic exhibit of Los Angeles’ myriad of murals is reviewed on a recent episode of KCRW’s Art Talk radio show. Gonzales-Day’s “Surface Tension” at the Skirball Center is an index to other art—how to find, and more important, identify, what is usually anonymous—as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA‘s  months-long celebration of Latino art throughout Southern California. Gonzales-Day, professor of art at Scripps College, was honored with a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in 2017.
In a recent Los Angeles Times articleGonzales-Day’s work was featured in “Into Action,” a nine-day arts and culture festival held in downtown LA that focused on issues of human rights and social justice. Works from more than 200 artists were displayed during the festival. Gonzales-Day’s artwork was exhibited alongside other high-profile artists such as Shepard Fairey, Sam Durant, Robbie Conal, Edgar Arceneaux, Swoon, and Cole Sternberg. The collection of activist-oriented art aligned with six themes: “Justice is a Human Right,” “Together We Rise,” “No Human is Illegal and No Human Should Feel Unsafe,” “This Moment – In History,” “Manifesting Solutions” and “Love, Peace, and Empathy.”
