About the Internship

The Social and Public Art Resource Center aims to produce, preserve, and promote activist and socially relevant artwork; to devise and innovate excellent art pieces through participatory processes; and ultimately, to foster artistic collaborations that empower communities who face marginalization or discrimination. Today they have contemporized the historic processes through the incorporation of technology in the UCLA@SPARC Digital/Mural Lab where they produce large scale imagery both painted and digitally printed, work with communities across the country and internationally over the internet, and continue to innovate new materials that seek permanence in outdoor environments. The programs have been widely emulated across the country and internationally as we continue to stay on the cutting edge of innovation of large-scale public art works and community interactive processes. Organizations like SPARC maintain the spirit and substance of transformation we need no more than ever in the city and country, by visualizing change through the arts and by engaging our communities in much needed civic discourse.
