KaleidoLA is the Department of Art and Art History’s annual guest speaker series. For the past nine years, KaleidoLA has been a vital connection between Loyola Marymount University and the Los Angeles arts community. During 2021-2022, the Department of Art and Art History, in collaboration with the Laband Art Gallery, will thematically center artists whose artwork and lived experiences foreground issues of racial, economic and social justice. In light of COVID-19 precautions, all lectures will be delivered live on Zoom.
