Fab Lab Presents: Approaches to Artmaking with the Corita Art Center

CAC curator and collections manager Olivian Cha will give a brief introduction to Corita's life and work, followed by a closer examination of the role that photography played in her artistic and pedagogical practice.

Following the presentation, the Corita Art Center and Altadena Library will co-present a workshop centered on one of Corita's favorite teaching tools: the viewfinder. Attendees will receive custom 3D printed viewfinders created in the Fab Lab—a space for Altadena's community of DIY makers and artists—and will have the opportunity to become members of the Fab Lab.
