The University of La Verne College of Law presents “Deeply Uncompromising: 125 Years of Mission,” an exhibit featuring pieces curated by artist Conchi Sanford. It opens Sept. 27 and runs through Dec. 16.
Sanford, an adjunct professor of art at San Jacinto College and Crafton Hills College, will bring together work from the Self-Help Graphics & Art center of East Los Angeles, an important part of the Chicano art movement. The organization focuses primarily on young and emerging artists.
The work aligns with some of the university’s values, such as diversity and inclusivity, as well as civic and community engagement. The exhibit offers a conduit to these values, and provides an artistic rendition of historic value.
A reception for the exhibit will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 27 at the gallery, 320 E. D St., Ontario.
Sanford is a visual artist living in Pomona. She has curated multiple exhibits in the Inland Empire, greater Los Angeles area and Orange County, among other venues, bringing togethermultipleemergingandwell-establishedartistsunderacohesivetheme.

The community may visit the gallery during the hours the College of Law is open, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends. Information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
