Marina del Pedro
A port and its surrounding community are often perceived as two entities. The project   Marina del Pedro synthesizes and explores them as one in an interpretive assemblage looking at the seaside   community of San Pedro and its harbor, the Port of Los Angeles.   

Marina del Pedro  includes artwork from students at the Boys & Girls Club of the Los Angeles Harbor, historical material from the San Pedro Bay Historical Society archives, community submissions, as well as work by artists Angela Romero, Arlo Tinsman-Kongshaug, Beth Elliot t , Calimucho, Daniel Porras, Dusty Gatica, Eddie Meeks, Evelyn McDonnell, Francisquito Gerardo González, Hyung Mo Lee, Jerry Burton, June Edmonds, Lowell Nickel, Machine Studio, Raymundo Maldonado, Phoebe Barnum, Wally, Yoon Jin Kim, and Jennifer Marquez among others. The exhibition is curated by artist Tim Maxeiner

They Fly Like Flowers:
Works by Young Artists and Poets
Our galleries downstairs will be a full exhibition of Artists-in-Classrooms student artwork. The exhibition features multimedia works from second and third grade visual arts classes, as well as poetry and prose from fourth and fifth grade creative writing classes. The show is named from a line of haiku written by a fifth-grader at Webster Elementary School.

Angels Gate’s Artists In Classrooms program provides quality, in-depth instruction in the visual and performing arts to students K-12 throughout the Harbor Region. Professional artists teach all classes during 12-week in-school residencies. Visual arts lessons offer students opportunities to explore the creative process through drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and other 2- and 3-D art forms. Writing classes blend theatre, poetry, and creative prose together to prepare students for their middle school writing career.
