This chapter presents the transcript of an artist's panel held during the conference “The Watts Towers Common Ground Initiative: Art, Migrations, Development,” in Los Angeles on October 22–24, 2010. The panel demonstrated how the Towers have inspired many individual artists and how the Watts Towers Arts Center (WTAC) became the cultural heart of Watts. Participants were former (John Outterbridge) and current (Rosie Lee Hooks) WTAC directors along with several artists involved with the Center over the years, including R. Judson Powell (who had worked with its first director and artist, Noah Purifoy in the early 1960s), Charles Dickson, Betye Saar, Augustine Aguirre, and Kenzi Shiokava.
