Time & Location

Workman & Temple Family Homestead Museum, 15415 Don Julian Rd, City of Industry, CA 91745, USA

About the event

The Los Angeles region has been shaped by waves of migration and settlement, from indigenous inhabitants to Spanish colonizers, Mexican ranchers to American settlers, and more recent immigrants from across the globe. Each successive wave brings their traditions and culture, including the plants that connect them to home, shaping the landscape and creating the ever evolving cultural tapestry that we inhabit today.

Using digital negatives made from the museum’s collection and clippings from the gardens, we will be creating cyanotype images that reflect this rich history.  Cyanotype, an early photographic process, uses simple chemistry, sunlight, and water to expose and develop an image. Participants will have the opportunity to work with these materials in the creation of their own beautiful blue prints to take home!

Please note: A $10 supplies fee will be collected at the start of the workshop.

Workshop Presenter Bio: Danielle Giudici Wallis is an artist and educator currently residing in Redlands, California. She has a BA in Visual Arts and Education from Antioch College, and an MFA in Studio Arts from Stanford University where she was the recipient of the Murphy Cadogan Grant, the James Borelli Fellowship in Art, the Anita Squires Memorial Fund in Photography and a fellowship from the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts. Her work has been exhibited widely in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond including shows at Catharine Clark Gallery, Raid Projects in Los Angeles, A.I.R. in New York, and The California Palace of the Legion of Honor which holds one of her artist’s books in their Achenbach collection. In 2022 she was the recipient of grants from the Puffin Foundation and Arts Connection for her socially engaged environmental work, and in 2023 was hired by the Ontario Museum of History and Art to serve as Creative Strategist funded through the Inland SoCal Creative Corp. Her work emerges from an interest in understanding the porous boundaries of nature and culture, and finding sites of tension where they entwine. She currently teaches at the University of Redlands’ Johnston Center for Integrative Studies and Chaffey College.
