CALARTS PROGRAM TO RECEIVE MLK HERO AWARD.
VALENCIA -- Actress Anne Archer will visit Santa Clarita today to present a Martin Luther King Jr. Human Rights Hero award to a program at California Institute of the Arts and its director.
Award recipient Glenna Avila is the director of CalArts' Community Arts Partnership, which links the local art school to community art centers and public schools throughout Los Angeles County, providing college-level arts education to middle and high school students.
CAP courses are designed to mirror the approaches used in teaching the different artistic disciplines at CalArts. All CAP classes and workshops are offered free and culminate in performances, exhibitions, concerts and screenings.
Archer is the founder of Artists for Human Rights, one of the sponsors of today's event. Other sponsors include The International Foundation for Human Rights and Tolerance, and Youth for Human Rights.
``The CAP program goes into inner-city communities and teaches art when there is no art education available,'' said Michelle Seward, U.S. president of the International Foundation for Human Rights and Tolerance. ``If the kids stay in the program, they are offered scholarships to CalArts.''
The award ceremony will also feature guest performers and screenings of Human Rights Public Service Announcements.
