Deborah, who lives just a block from me, sent me this notice about the upcoming exhibition “Bringing the Past to Light: New Art from Old Images.” Looking forward to this!

During the exhibition Bringing the Past to Light: New Art from Old Images, artists working in new media will present temporary projects and installations in and around El Alisal, the historic home of Charles Fletcher Lummis in Highland Park. Making use of images taken from old photographs, artists working in installation, performance, music, video, and other new media will create an innovative mix of past, present and future visions of the Arroyo area, calling to mind the bohemian sensibility of Lummis’s circle and/or inventing scenarios of Arroyo life yet to be. Bringing the Past to Light is presented by the Arroyo Arts Collective, sponsored by the Historical Society of Southern California, and opens on May 17, running through June 14. El Alisal is located at 200 E. Avenue 43, Los Angeles, CA 90031. For hours, performance times and information visit
