Be the Change, a photography exhibition featuring timely and incisive protest photographs by California photographer Cindy Bendat, will open on Monday, September 11, and continue through October 10, 2017. Bendat’s protest photographs range from the Anti-war/Anti-Bush protests in 2003 to the Occupy movement in 2011 to the Women’s March and Anti-Trump protests held in January 2017. Her photographs reveal the visual power of people taking action in major protest movements in Los Angeles, including those concerning Immigrant rights, the Occupy movement, Black Lives Matter, Arab Spring, Burma freedom, Anti-Iraq war/peace, Labor unions and worker solidarity, and the Women’s March.


The University Art Gallery is one of the major exhibition spaces in the South Bay area; it is a valuable resource for the Art and Design Department, the University, and the Los Angeles artistic community. The gallery presents six to ten exhibitions per academic year, including a series of student showcases in Design and Studio Art, that explore different artistic styles, cultures, historical periods, social movements, and media.The gallery schedule culminates in the two senior student art exhibitions in Design and Studio Art. It is an integral educational tool, providing tours to classes, community groups and school groups, and further it gives an opportunity for faculty, students and interns to participate in curating gallery exhibitions, designing installations and learning arts management. With over 2,000 square feet in exhibition space and 18’ high ceilings, this exciting space is easily accessible and therefore a perfect venue for forums, student art critique classes, discussions with artists, and guest lecture events.
