SPARC Digital Mural Lab Assistant Internship


Venice, CA 

About SPARC:  

The Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) was founded in 1976 by Chicana muralist and educator Judith F. Baca, filmmaker/director Donna Deitch and Artist/Teacher Christina Schlesinger.  SPARC is a cultural center that creates public art as a vehicle to promote civic dialogue, foster cross-cultural understanding and address critical social issues.  SPARC has remained committed to its values as a socially responsible organization utilizing art to bring about social change.  We also remain committed to helping communities find their voice, giving them public expression, and having others hear it; while breaking down barriers, real and perceived, between and within communities. What we do is as much about community transformation and creating permanent sites of public memory as it is about public art.
