The mission of Inner-City Arts is to provide opportunities in the arts to the students of Los Angeles’ inner-
city schools, where harsh conditions and economic disadvantages create barriers to achievement. Art
offers opportunities for these children to believe in themselves. This belief becomes the seed from which
personal lives flourish and academic growth explodes.
At Inner-City Arts, we provide hands-on activities in the visual arts, dance, ceramics, animation, music
and drama. Our children learn to communicate feelings and ideas in the universal language of art, and
are empowered to apply the skills they have learned to their regular academic programs. Most
importantly, children are able to see themselves as valuable, worthy and capable of reaching goals.

Masami Tsuchikawa
Untitled (2005) 21 x 24 inches, porcelain on panel
Masami Tsuchikawa was born in Tokyo, Japan and moved to Los Angeles in 1997 where she apprenticed as a
ceramicist. She has since worked on many major architectural commissions for hand glazed tile installations, and
large-scale sculptural relief works. Her new works are aggregations of tiny clay pieces. The forms she makes
reflect the patterns and movements of nature. The arrangements grow like living organisms dispersing gradually
as they radiate from their point of origin. The play of light and shadow is an integral element in the compositions.
Each piece is hand made, and each is a unique variation of the same basic shape.

Andy Moses
Siren Song               (2005) 16 x 20 inches, acrylic on canvas
Abstract artist Andy Moses is the son of Los Angeles painter Ed Moses. He makes paintings that construct
themselves through contradictions. The movement one can sense across their surfaces, the elusive assertion and
recession of content, is that of a perpetual shift between possibilities. Is it desert or ocean? Mountains or sky?
Above or below? These questions may not matter as much as the simple realization that either answer could be
equally true. Moses builds on the freedoms won by abstract expressionism to deal directly in the currency of
consciousness, yet he is also seduced by the power of nature ’s forms to support the same discourse, welcoming
them back into the compositions. Exhibited at Newport Harbor Art Museum, Patricia Faure Gallery, Off Main
Gallery and Double Vision Gallery among others.
