Artist Roundtable


In an effort to reinvigorate the involvement and leadership of longstanding and emerging artists and to cultivate a future-forward artistic direction, SHG invited 25 artists to become a part of an advisory group, which would help shape SHG’s artistic vision as it relates to programming for future seasons.


Established in 2011, the goals of the Artist Roundtable are to:

1. Serve as advisors and idea originators in the plan to reboot innovative and accessible programming;
2. Recommend emerging talent and honor master artists;
3. Generate a pool of committed volunteers, instructors, mentors and curators;
4. Establish and lead a quarterly salon to provide an environment for artists’ dialogue and collaboration


The Roundtable meets as a group monthly and are called upon to:

  • Advise staff on artistic matters
  • Participate in annual planning and program development
  • Evaluate artist and artistic project proposals and provide feedback
  • Help promote Self Help Graphics & Art in the community through special events and outreach activities
  • Mentor students in SHG’s community and youth arts programming
  • Participate in readings, workshops, and special events as available


Artist Roundtable meetings are primarily held on the 3rd Thursday of the Month at 6PM (SHG: 1300 East 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90033).

When people say the Eastside has a new arts renaissance, I point to 40 years of Self Help Graphics history. From the community, for the community!
