Skate The Youth:
A Solo Show by Xitlali Martinez

Inspired by Davonte Jolly’s “GODSPEED”, Xitlali Martinez's Virtual Solo Exhibition "Skate the Youth" amplifies skateboarding as both a sport and a source of community for young skaters who are usually not represented in mainstream media unless they are professionals. The series of prints follows local teens as they skate in various neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles. Captured on 35mm film, these images document their determination as they tackle tricks, perfect their skills, the independence they gain as they skate, and the community that stems around their shared values. While skate parks might not exist in every neighborhood, these skaters typically find spots throughout their communities and transform these spaces into their own escapes. Skate the Youth is a testament to the dedication young Angelenos have to each other, to their sport, and to challenging the stereotypes that have continued to disenfranchise them.

Join us on Saturday Sep 25, 2021 at 5 PM for the virtual opening reception of Skate The Youth and hear from the artist about her work and process for creating her inspiring exhibition.

HOO UPDATE: proof of vaccination status or negative
COVID tests now required for indoor mega events
The Health Officer Order has been modified to align with President Biden’s national strategy, including some targeted vaccine requirements to ensure we continue to lower transmission rates and protect each other.

The HOO update includes requirements for all attendees at indoor mega events- events with 1,000 or more attendees indoors and include, conventions, conferences, expos, concerts, shows, nightclubs, sporting events, live entertainment, and festivals- to show proof of full vaccination or a negative test result prior to entry. Self-attestation can no longer be used to verify an attendee's status as fully vaccinated or as proof of a negative COVID-19 test result.

Acceptable proof of vaccination status includes a photo identification with any one of the following:
  • CDC COVID-19 vaccination record card (white card)
  • World Health Organization (WHO) vaccine record card (yellow card)
  • California Department of Public Health (CDPH) COVID-19 digital vaccination record
  • Other COVID-19 digital vaccination record issued by an approved company
  • Documentation of vaccination from the healthcare provider or entity that provided the COVID-19 vaccines
  • California Immunization Registry (CAIR2) vaccination record
The vaccination proof should include the person’s name, type of COVID-19 vaccine, and the date of the doses administered. The person can show the vaccination card, a photo of the card as a separate document, or a photo of the card stored on a phone or electronic device.

Acceptable proof of a negative test includes a photo identification with testing results that must include the person’s name, type of COVID-19 viral test performed, and negative test result. The date when the COVID-19 test was taken must be within the 72 hours prior to the event.
