LOS ANGELES - Today the LA Civil Rights Department and Cal State LA University Library hosted a student art show featuring 38 works completed by Cal State LA undergraduate students as part of the LA For All Week celebrations.

The LA For All Student Art Showcase honored the students who participated in the LA For All art project led by Professor Zachary Vernon in 2021. Over the course of fall semester, these students designed their own versions of an anti-hate PSA campaign, defining in unique ways what an 'LA For All' means to them.

These 38 works tell the story of an inclusive and empowered Los Angeles, where creativity meets solidarity. Each piece is unique, but together, they show us how to build a Los Angeles stronger than hate. View all 38 works and the meaning behind them in the students' words here.

The showcase was hosted by the LA Civil Rights Department and its Human Relations Commission, the Cal State LA University Library, and the Cal State LA College of Arts & Letters as part of LA For All Week.
