Upcoming Homeboy Industries Art Show

On Saturday, March 19, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Homeboy Industries will host the opening reception for their new art project, Exit Wounds.

Exit Wounds is a collaborative project between former gang-involved youth and Los Angeles artist Nancy Baker Cahill. The exhibits tell the stories of each participant through photographs, original art, text and unconventional objects.

The opening reception will be held at the Hi-Lite Project Space (533 South Los Angeles Street). Works will be on sale with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Homebody Industries. The exhibit will also be available for public viewing on March 22, 29, and April 5 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. or by appointment by calling 213-784-2003.
