    Join SAC Assistant Professor Colin Gunckel at the American Culture Authors reception to celebrate the publication of Gunckel's book, Self Help Graphics & Art. In January 2014, Gunckel published the second edition of Self Help Graphics & Art, that brings the original edition up to date, adding breadth and depth to the history of the historic East L. A. arts center. Self Help Graphics has been a national model for community-based art making and art-based community making since its founding in the early 1970s. Known for its groundbreaking printmaking and art education programs, Self Help Graphics has empowered local artists and taught the world about the vibrancy of Chicano/Latino art.
