This past summer, the ambitious In Plain Sight project saw skywritten messages above carceral sites across the nation, urging action and solidarity with the unjustly imprisoned caught in the twinned systems of criminal justice and immigration policy. Garnering international headlines, the artists behind the project, including its chiefs rafa esparza and Cassils, will moderate a series of panel discussions on the origins of the idea and the choices of sites and texts that made it so powerful. The first talk also includes artists Bamby Salcedo, Beatriz Cortez, Yosimar Reyes, and Ken Gonzalez-Day — who generated the “shared orbit path,” around DTLA over the July 4 weekend. Thursday, August 13, 4pm.
