First career retrospective of photographer George Rodriguez, spanning over four decades of images including civil rights activism, popular culture, and everyday urban life.
Located on the campus of East Los Angeles College, the Vincent Price Art Museum's new facility, opening with the exhibition 'Roundtrip: Eight ELAC Alumni Artists' in May, 2011, is the first institutional art space to serve the East Los Angeles area. VPAM is a cultural center that benefits the college and its community by offering significant exhibitions and by providing all of Los Angeles with the resource of a regional showcase.
Beginning in 1951, noted actor and collector, Vincent Price, donated art objects from his personal collection to ELAC, establishing the first “teaching art collection” owned by a community college. In 1957, the Vincent and Mary Grant Price Gallery — as it was then known — was founded. Even today, ELAC remains one of the few community colleges in the United States with the resource of a major art collection. Over the course of more than sixty years, the gallery space has expanded and the collection has grown to more than 9,000 objects.
