By Alexandra Grant Printed by Maggie Lomeli Curated by Yasmine Zodeh
This limited edition of prints was made by artist Alexandra Grant as part of a special collaboration with the fashion house Oscar de la Renta. Invited by curator Yasmine Zodeh, Grant has created a series of four prints in colors inspired by Oscar de la Renta’s spring/summer 2020 collection. The charitable beneficiaries of these grantLOVE prints will vary as the exhibition travels to different locations, and currently is benefiting Project Angel Food.
Project Angel Food cooks and delivers over 600,000 nutritious meals each year, free of charge, to the homes of men, women, and children affected by life-threatening illnesses. Our medically tailored meals and nutritional counseling services help chronically and terminally ill people throughout Los Angeles County who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Created in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, we expanded our mission in 2004 to help our neighbors who are struggling with the multiple challenges of hunger, isolation and their critical illness. Every week, we deliver to 12,000 meals to 1,400 people in need from Metro, South and East LA, to Pomona, La Mirada and Long Beach, and to the remote town of Antelope Valley. Since 1989, we have served over 12 million meals to more than 20,000 people. www.angelfood.org
