Artist Kathie Foley

Kathie remembers Bronzeville, or more accurately, imagines it in her new exhibit at LA Artcore at the Union Center for the Arts in Little Tokyo. Her show is part of the larger Project Bronzeville, which has events throughout the month of June, including a play, a panel discussion and of course, a jazz show!!

Project Bronzeville is a combination of fine art, theater, a panel discussion and music coming together to commemorate the brief but vibrant part of LA history when Japanese Americans were forced out of their homes and businesses in Little Tokyo during WWII and African American families from the south moved into these vacant spaces and renamed the neighborhood “Bronzeville.”
