Artist Lecture Series: George Rodriguez

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 06:00 PM

Free and open to the public!

LACC's Visual & Media Arts Department presents another installment of their Artist Lecture Series!

6:00pm - 7:30pm

A George Rodriguez portrait of rapper Eazy-EGeorge Rodriguez has photographed multiple social worlds — a rare mix of Hollywood and Chicano L.A., film premieres and farmworker strikes, album covers and street scenes, celebrity portraits and civil rights marches. Throughout the 1960s and 70s, Rodriguez, raised in South Los Angeles, led something of a double life as a photographer. He worked for film studios, record labels, and magazines like Tiger Beat while also photographing the social movements and protests that were exploding on the streets of Los Angeles and throughout the country: the East Los Angeles Walkouts, the Chicano Moratorium, and the United Farm Workers movement. He has created iconic photographs of Cesar Chavez, Michael Jackson, and Easy-E to name a few of his many subjects.
