Dan Concholar was a member of the Black Arts Council (BAC), an organization that worked to expand opportunities for African American artists working in Los Angeles. The BAC successfully lobbied the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to exhibit more work by African American artists, which resulted in the exhibitions “Three Graphic Artists: Charles White, David Hammons, and Timothy Washington” (1971), “Los Angeles 1972: A Panorama of Black Artists” (1972), and “Two Centuries of Black American Art” (1976). —
