Willowbrook Library celebrates abstract art in this unique collection with the Los Angeles County Art Commission’s Civic Art Program. Each piece selected for the library develops a language through design, pigment, and form to be translated and responded to by the viewer. Interpreted like the written texts in the library, these works offer themselves as artifacts without representational imagery that hold culturally specific and personal narratives, as well as common stories of human understanding. Join Dr. Jill Moniz and artists: Ana Rodriguez, Miguel Osuna, Duane Paul, Joe Sims, and Rosalyn Myles in celebration of the new Willowbrook Library.
The mission of the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture is to advance arts, culture, and creativity throughout LA County.

This work is framed by the County’s Cultural Equity and Inclusion Initiative and a longstanding commitment to fostering access to the arts.
