As part of her process for creating the artwork, Davis will host a public conversation with Inglewood native, resident journalist and poet Teka-Lark Fleming to discuss her art practice. Writer and Writ Large Press publisher Peter Woods, also an Inglewood native, will introduce Davis and Fleming. Following the conversation, attendees are welcome to participate in a photo shoot from which Davis will select portraits to develop into drawings that will in turn become part of the final artwork at Florence/La Brea Station.
Light refreshments will be available and there is free street parking.
Space is limited and attendees will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. It is recommended that you arrive early.
