Associate Professor Colin Gunckel recently served as a member of the curatorial committee for the forthcoming exhibition, Tastemakers & Earthshakers: Notes from Los Angeles Youth Culture, 1943–2016 (running dates October 15, 2016- February 25, 2017, Vincent Price Art Museum, East Los Angeles College).
