$4 million renovation will transform Self Help Graphics into 'space of healing, creative expression'

The state allocation of a $4 million fund for Self Help Graphics will help the Boyle Heights arts institution transform its current headquarters into a place that feels like home for the community.

At a press conference Friday, executive director Betty Ávila said the funds will allow SHG to renovate the 110 year old building and redesign its existing programs. She said the organization plans to work “as a space of healing, creative expression.”
