  • Description

Artist Sandy Rodriguez was placed as an artist in residence at the Recuperative Care Center (RCC) at the Martin Luther King Medical Campus in Willowbrook, CA, in 2016-17. This residency was part of a $1.6 million investment in Civic Art funded through LA County's Percent for Art Policy. Rodriguez was given the task of developing a "meaningful, sustainable program for the Recuperative Care Center that will engage staff and clients and create artwork to be displayed at the facility." This internal evaluation of the residency found that Rodriguez created a workshop structure that was relevant to the needs of RCC clients and highly valued by staff.
