Great individuals keep stopping by Grand Central Art Center for a visit.  Today, we were honored to have curator Rijin Sahakian and Los Angeles based artist Amitis Motevalli stop by for the afternoon.

Rijin is in Los Angeles for the next year working on an exhibition with the LA Dept of Cultural Affairs on contemporary Islamic art and teaching a class at CalArts.

Amitis’ work has “centered on signage and symbology from Iranian and Islamic/Shia art and how they are significant in the construction of histories through documentation.”

What a pleasure to have them here at GCAC!
