Recap: Artifesto 2016 ~ Inglewood

On October 8th, I was invited to Artifesto 2016 in Inglewood. This event is put together by Diego Mendoza, you may recall his show Full Circle was featured on LATACO a few year ago. Diego is an entrepreneur, event coordinator and artist who is committed to bring art events to the South Central and South Bay area.

From the time we first met Diego, he has made major strides in tailoring his programs to the people of Inglewood, and exposing new art to the community. This year's event was held at Chuco's Justice Center which serves as a youth and community space and resource center.
