"Erasure: Native American Genocide: A Legacy" features artists Gerald Clarke, Mercedes Dorame, River Garza, Pamela J. Peters and William Wilson, who represent the Cahuilla, Gabrielino-Tongva, Navajo and other tribes, and who use photography, found objects and mixed-media to delve into the traditions, stereotypes and current political context of their indigenous roots. The library's PassageWay includes serigraphs by additional artists Votan Henriquez, Randy Kemp, Douglas Miles, Felicia Montes, Kimberly Robertson and Marianne Sadowski from Self Help Graphics.
Opened in 2017 inside Glendale's renovated Downtown Central Library, and co-curated by photographer Ara Oshagan and his wife, Anahid, ReflectSpace exhibits art that explores not only historical atrocities and marginalized communities but modern-day injustices. Incorporating both contemporary art and technology alongside archival materials, past displays have covered the Holocaust, Armenian genocide, WWII's Japanese-American internment camps and the U.S.-Mexico border.
