NOMAD Program To Open New Exhibit At Valencia Town Center

The City of Santa Clarita, in partnership with the NOMAD Program, will unveil a new Common Spaces: Art in Public Places display at the Small Space, Big Stories Gallery located on the second story of the Westfield Valencia Town Center, near Sears. The exhibit, “Art Making for Change: NOMAD LAB,” will be on display between Friday, January 18 and Saturday, May 18. The community is invited to enjoy this new exhibit and attend a free reception in recognition of participating artists on Saturday, January 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Small Spaces, Big Stories Gallery. The reception will include light appetizers, live music and a chance to meet the artists, including artists from the new exhibit “The Left Brain: Art from Bowman High,” which is now on display at the Valencia Westfield Town Center.

“Public art enriches our City by adding personality and encouraging participation among community members,” said Mayor Bob Kellar. “The Arts in Public Places exhibits not only enhance our community’s quality of life, it also provides a unique opportunity for local artists to showcase creations in prominent areas throughout Santa Clarita.”

Founded in 2010, NOMAD LAB program is supported by the Anti-Gang Task Force and serves as a laboratory of creativity, collaboration and community for youth and their families. The program is part of the Valle del Oro committee’s efforts to provide positive options for youth in the area as a deterrent to gang involvement and crime. NOMAD LAB workshops take place in vacant apartments at different locations around town, which makes the nature of the program nomadic.
