Los Angeles Artist Collectives You Should Check Out By Diane Williams Breaking through the art world has never been more challenging.

Diane Williams: My America | Lancaster Museum of Art and History - MOAH

Saturday, September 9th, 2017

5pm-9pm

Lancaster Museum of Art and History – MOAH

665 W Lancaster Blvd., Lancaster, CA 93534


My America is William's recent body of work about finding common ground with the community at large.

Diane Williams is a multidisciplinary artist whose work stems from the political and social landscape that surrounds her. She uses art as a call to arms, creating works that explore issues about immigrants and gender to encourage cultural and social understanding.

In this participatory piece, the artist asked viewers to write the first name of an immigrant (first, second, third generation….) they know and their relationship to that person on a piece of paper and then post it on a wall with an outlined map of the United States. The word immigrant has had a negative connotation in our society. This project examines how people view immigrants and questions their own immigrant identity.
