May 23 – July 14, 2019
Opening reception: May 19, 2 – 5 PM

The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery presents COLA 2019, an exhibition featuring new work by Enrique Castrejon, Juan Capistrán, Kim Fisher, Sabrina Gschwandtner, Katie Grinnan, Alice Könitz, Olga Koumoundouros, Sandy Rodriguez, Stephanie Taylor, Peter Wu and Jenny Yurshansky.

These eleven artists are the recipients of the 2019 City of Los Angeles (COLA) Individual Artist Fellowship for visual arts. The Fellows were selected by a panel comprising curators, educators, museum directors and past COLA Fellows. The fellowship provides each artist with $10,000 to produce a new body of work, which will be premiered at the COLA 2019 exhibition. “COLA Fellows are the types of unique civic entrepreneurs that we need in this city,” said DCA General Manager Danielle Brazell. “DCA is proud to honor these creative visionaries and nurture their symbiotic relationships with LA and other artists and the city’s history and identity as an international arts capital.” The exhibition will be accompanied by a public program as well as a catalog designed by Jody Zellen, a former COLA awardee.
