We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Yolanda López González (b. 1930). López González, who also went by "YOLA", started her artistic practice as a ceramacist at the age of 83. Although she had a relatively short career she was able to amass a strong collector base in Los Angeles.
---------
YOLA's works are currently on view at the Vincent Price Art Museum as part of the exhibition "Yolanda González: Sueño de Familia / Dream of Family" available through March 14, 2020.
---------
Yolanda López González was born in Monterrey, Mexico and moved to Houston, Texas in 1950. She later moved to Montebello, California. López González, the mother of artist Yolanda González, began making art at the age of 83. She distinguished her practice from her daughters by signing her works as "YOLA". She began to make ceramics after attending a workshop with her daughter in 2013.

"VPAM is the most community-oriented museum I have ever come across. They not only attempt to provide a unique experience for the average visitor, but also connect deeply with the community of East Los Angeles. Having an internship at VPAM was one of the most fun and rewarding experiences I’ve ever had."

VPAM is dedicated to representing diverse voices and perspectives that reflect the world we live in. Our goals over the past few years have been simple but profound: to foreground the ideas and vision of artists and cultural practitioners that reflect the diversity of our society; to shift the canon of art history by centering artists of color, to bring scholarship and art historical integrity to the work of under recognized artists; to be a national leader in issues of diversity and equity in museums; and to be accessible, and to listen and respond to the voices of those around us. We believe that what we do, and why we do it, is critical to society.

The Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM) is dedicated to the representation of diverse voices and perspectives reflective of the world we live in. Our goals over the past few years have been simple but profound: to foreground the ideas and vision of artists and cultural practitioners that reflect the diversity of our society; to shift the canon of art history by centering artists of color, rather than sidelining them; to bring scholarship and art historical integrity to the work of under-recognized artists; to be a national leader in issues of diversity and equity in museums; and to be accessible, and to listen and respond to the voices of those around us. We believe that what we do, and why we do it, is critical to society.

In the past year, VPAM presented 17 new, continuing, permanent collection, and traveling exhibitions both onsite and offsite, all focused on artists of color. This year has also been a landmark year for our diversity pipeline programs: we expanded upon the continuing Smithsonian Undergraduate Internship Program and launched a new Museum Studies Certificate program in September.

As 2019 winds down, we would like to express our deep gratitude to the many artists, collaborators, partners, and contributors who make VPAM the special place that it is. We hope you will join us in our efforts by making a donation today towards our $10,000 goal. We thank you for your continued support and we wish you a wonderful holiday season and prosperous year ahead!

VPAM community: please attend this benefit and consider donating to support fine art handler Bryan Chagolla, who recently found out he has Stage 4 Stomach Cancer. Anything helps for our dear friend and colleague Bryan.

Charlie James Gallery is moved to present “With a Little Help From My Friends,” a group exhibition to benefit the beloved preparator of our gallery, Bryan Chagolla. Bryan is 38 years old and has a wife and two young daughters, and he is among the finest fine art preparators here in Los Angeles. The day Bryan’s second daughter Rosalyn was born on June 19th of this year, Bryan was diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer and he cannot work. He is being treated at City of Hope here in LA and is fighting hard and making strides towards recovery. This show has the goal of taking care of Bryan and his family’s expenses for the next year as he receives treatment. We’ve asked our gallery artists and artists who have worked with us to donate works to the exhibition, which will run a full term from September 14th thru October 26th at the gallery.

VPAM exhibiting artist Milton Quon passed away at the age of 105 on Tuesday, June 18th. In 2012, Quon was featured in our Pacific Standard Time exhibition ‘Round the Clock: Chinese American Artists Working in Los Angeles, alongside George Chann, John Kwok, Jake Lee, and Tyrus Wong.

Quon was born in 1913 in Los Angeles and grew up in Market Chinatown near the downtown City Market. He studied art at Frank Wiggins Trade School (now Los Angeles Trade Technical College) and Los Angeles Junior College before attending Chouinard Art Institute. In the 1940s, Quon worked as an animator and illustrator at Walt Disney Studios, contributing to Fantasia (1940), Dumbo (1941), and publicity/promotions projects at the company. In 1951, Quon went on to become the first Chinese art director at a national (now global) advertising firm, Batten, Barton, Durstine, and Osborn (BBDO). Quon went on to work at Sealright Packaging and taught art at Los Angeles Trade Technical College. In his retirement, Quon enjoyed watercolor painting on location, traveling, sketching, and working as a film and television extra.

The Vincent Price Art Museum & Foundation sends its condolences and deepest sympathies to the Quon family.
