Los Angeles, CA –  A small galaxy of stellar works will grace the Cal State L.A. Fine Arts Gallery through May 8 in the University’s annual exhibition of undergraduate art.

The pieces were created within the last year by CSULA undergraduate students from the Art Department’s Animation, Graphic Design, Fashion & Textiles, Art Education, and Studio Arts Options.  The wide range of works were juried by the CSULA Department of Art faculty.  

In display cases just outside the gallery, a highlights exhibition by two budding art historians, Leslie Jacobo and Tiffany Staines, will present selections from the “Walls of Passion: Murals of Los Angeles” exhibition along with frame selections of Los Angeles’ Murals according to traditional, non-traditional and iconic narratives strategies.

Another display case features CSULA alumnus, Kent Twitchell’s archival material and documents of his Harbor Freeway Overture mural in Los Angeles.

According to Gallery Director Karin Lanzoni, “The exhibition and displays represent the collective and creative output of the Department of Art at CSULA, and we invite the greater CSULA community to come and view the compelling work created by our current undergraduate students.”

An opening reception was held April 26.

The Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday through Thursday and Saturdays, from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For details, call (323) 343-4040 or email Lanzoni  at
