Slanguage will be LAxART’s educational program in-residence for an ongoing period. Founded in 2002 by Karla Diaz and Mario Ybarra, Jr., Slanguage is headquartered in Wilmington, a working-class neighborhood of Los Angeles that is part of the harbor district. Current members make artwork, curate exhibitions, coordinate events, and lead art-education workshops. A diverse group at various points in their careers, Slanguage includes teenagers, street writers, and artists of all ages. The majority of these collaborators live and work in Wilmington.
