The Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM) on the East LA Community College campus in Monterey Park was the destination of CSUB Art 4000 Theory in Visual Arts and Art 4040 Professional Practices students taking advantage of a field trip to the near-by art world that is just over the Grapevine organized by Professors Eamon Ore-Giron and Bill Kelley, Jr., this past weekend.
Ore-Giron said, “Bill and I brought the students to VPAM, museum at East LA Community College and to my studio in downtown, where we met with Eddie Aparicio, my neighbor, who showed us his work.”
The Vincent Price Art Museum became a collecting institution in 1957 when Vincent Price and his wife, Mary Grant Price, donated 90 artworks from their personal collection. This original donation included Mesoamerican, African, Native American, and European artworks; over the course of four decades, Vincent Price continued to give a total of about 2,000 pieces to VPAM. His generosity inspired many others: our collection has grown to more than 8,000 artworks from many time periods and many parts of the world. The collection includes works on paper, painting, and three-dimensional objects, all of which are housed on the campus.
Eddie Aparicio, a Salvadoran artist of a multi-generational family of artists, is an activist, as well. Eddie says of his own work: "My recent work and research has focused on the various connections between Central America and Los Angeles. I believe that focusing on multiple sites as a part of the same community and history is a crucial de-colonizing strategy and problematizes the term native."
Thanks to an amazing partnership between CSUB and Ronald Reagan Elementary, our students are able to attend classrooms at the school and teach art lessons.
Dr. Dianne Turner (Art Education) explains that ART 3100 is a service learning course which partners with Ronald Reagan Elementary School in Bakersfield. Students majoring in Art Education, Liberal Studies, Special Education and Child and Family Studies are able to take this hands-on course and teach art in the classroom.
Each semester, a theme centered around a renowned artist is used and based on the California Visual Arts standards for the grade level.

Fernández’s research on the 400 mile trail used by Basque- American sheepherders in the last century led her to create a series of paintings, castings and sculpture at the gallery. Their discussion will touch on sheepherder's arborglyphs found throughout the Sierras, transhumance pastoralism, and the landscape as evidentiary space.
This event is FREE and open to the public
