Self Help Graphics takes art to the streets

Self Help Graphics & Art is an Eastside institution, an organization formed at the height of the Chicano art movement with a mission to employ art as a tool for justice and social change. The group has survived some tough setbacks, including a temporary shutdown of its headquarters, but it stays in action with its community programming, workshops aimed at drawing out political expression through different art forms. “I definitely took the name literally – help yourself first. If you have these ideas or something you want to do, don’t wait for someone to show you.”  More on Boyle Heights Beat.
