Hosts of excited school children flooded CAAM's multi-functional Gallery of Discovery as soon as it was opened. Their reactions have been open and endearing. The emotional response by adults to the installation's physical presence, which evokes the memories of slavery, has been strong and unmistakable. Hear recordings of actual living slaves from the Library of Congress archives and discover stories from the past. This semi-permanent exhibition and multi-use education space provides a fascinating opportunity for visitors to connect with the lineage of their own family, engage in artistic workshops, educational tours and other programs of historical discoveries. Call 213-744-2084 to book a tour!
Continued appreciation for the Annenberg Foundation, the Kenneth T. and Eileen Norris Foundation, Mattel Inc., the State of California and artist Toni Scott for their support in making the Gallery of Discovery possible.
