Not to be missed MOPLA events

The last weeks of the Month of Photography in Los Angeles are still underway with exhibitions, lectures, and events. Here are a few not to be missed events:

On April 23rd The Lucie Foundation will host its first annual fundraising benefit to support SNAPSHOP! at the Factory Place Events Complex in Downtown Los Angeles from 7pm to 10pm. The Factory Arts Event Complex is a renovated button factory and the eventwill take place within its 9,000 square foot, sky-lit, brick-walled reception hall. The event will take place in association with Art Weekend LA and is supported by LARABA.

SNAPSHOP! is the Lucie Foundation’s photography workshop program for at-risk Los Angeles youth, and takes place over four consecutive Saturdays. The Lucie Foundation has recruited some of LA’s most successful photographers to teach students about lighting, editing and storytelling. The Lucie Foundation has partnered with Santa Monica College, Lomography and Julia Dean Photo Workshops to create dynamic locations in which the students will learn. This program started as a one-day workshop in 2009 and,due to high popularity and enrollment, has expanded to four days that culminate in the exhibition of the students’ work during MOPLA’s closing night. We hope to expand this program in 2012, to include 100 students. The Executive Director of the The Lucie Foundation, Cat Jimenez says “SNAPSHOP! is a new and extremely important program for the Foundation, speaking directly to the core of our mission to cultivate emerging talent. The outreach and recruitment process is rigorous, and talented yet under served students gain access to a phenomenal
photography experience that can leave an indelible imprint in their creative expression. This program is vital and these children deserve these opportunities to learn in supportive and nurturing environments”.
