Event description: 

Join us for an intimate conversation between Yale School of Art Dean Kymberly Pinder ’95 Ph.D and Lauren YoungSmith, a Los Angeles-based artist who has been commissioned to install a mural on the outer AACC building wall in commemoration of the AACC’s 40th Anniversary.
Lauren YS is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work is influenced by multiple stages of focus, both geographically and in practice. With dynamic bouts in academics, literature and writing, teaching, illustration, and animation leading up to their arrival in the urban art sphere, the influences of these phases of their own career add up to a robust style of murals and fine art. Lauren’s work is influenced by dreams, mythology, death, comics, love, sex, psychedelia, animation and their Asian American heritage.
