Of the 125 works of art entered, 71 were accepted from 53 artists by juror Dr. Mika Cho, an arts educator, researcher, consultant, curator and respected artist of Cal State LA In addition, a full-color printed catalog will be available on purchase a few days after opening.
Commenting on the exhibition, Dr Cho said: “Regarding this jury experience, the submitted work has no unity of content or style. Some of the work certainly reflects the turbulent times we have experienced since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and individual artistic practices in two-dimensional and three-dimensional works with various conceptual and technical backgrounds; however, the passion in the works of these artists was palpable.
