Postcards from Historic Broadway
Workshop with Karla Diaz
Saturday, June 18 | 1-4 PM
Virginia Avenue Park
2200 Virginia Avenue
Santa Monica, CA 90404
On Saturday June 18th, you’re invited to a postcard workshop that honors Santa Monica’s historic Broadway neighborhood, a thriving African American, Mexican American, and immigrant community that was destroyed by the construction of the Interstate 10 Freeway in the 1960s. Explore the Quinn Research Center’s archive and create a postcard that highlights the underrepresented stories of this neighborhood with artist Karla Diaz.
The workshop will provide copies of archival material sourced from the Quinn Research Center’s Broadway Heritage District archive. Participants are invited to cut and collage these materials into postcards that celebrate and explore local overlooked histories.
This workshop is organized by the Quinn Research Center and 18th Street Arts Center and is part of the 30th Annual Juneteenth Celebration in Santa Monica’s Virginia Avenue Park.
Registration is recommended but not required.
