Self Help Graphics building...

...sold? What better use for the space could there be than the gallery-printmaking-performance space -- not to mention common-law historical landmark -- it is now? Echo Park community activist Isa-Kae Meksin spotted the news on LA Eastside. According to the site, the Archdiocese wants to disencumber itself of the Self Help Graphics building, if not all the good it brought to the Chicano movement -- everything from punk to prints, there was room for it in that airy space on Cesar Chavez Ave. Developers want the building now. And it seems the church doesn't.

According to LA Eastside:

A public press conference is scheduled to take place at Self Help Graphics & Art on Friday, July 11, 2008 at 10am. Members of the Self Help Graphics Board of Directors will be present to answer questions about the future of our beloved and historical art center.
