Hello everybody, first of all I would like to welcome you to this new Art History Blog from yours truly Monica Smiles Tobon. Looking back to all movements here in the city of Los Angeles. I have found myself working with a wide range of artists, educators, organizations and among the most important; friends in this exquisite Art Scene. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by such inspiring and hard working individuals and I always find myself writing about them, or helping them write and edit their projects, or anything else where my passion for writing can be useful for.
It all began with reaching out to these amazing individuals and asked permission to write about them and research them in an academic setting and have been welcomed with an open heart and mind to document and share their experiences as artists, as well as their involvement in their community and cultures.
Therefore creating this blog is important and special to me because it is an opportunity to grow as an Art Historian, friend and writer for my community and fellow artists. I think it is important to educate the public with the most accurate information in regards the topics and issues that artists are faced with today as well the history of previous art movements. But most importantly; to rewrite the history of our Arte.
Once again, welcome to my world….of art…=)
Sincerely; Monica Smiles Tobon
