Paul Brach Visiting Artist Lecture Series

Areli Arellano is a Los Angeles-based artist working in a variety of mediums. Inspired by Latine culture, Areli's work explores religion, race, and gender. Exploring the juxtaposition between hard concepts and soft materials, she creates pieces with faux fur and other plush fabrics. The bright colors and textures draw viewers in, while the messages behind her work offer a place for reflection once they are fully captivated. Areli wants to create safe spaces for people of color, specifically women of color. She creates work that reminds POC of home while simultaneously challenging those in positions of privilege and power. 

All lectures are free, open to the public, and presented online. RSVP required.
