Festival for All Skid Row Artists
Since 2010, every year in October, Los Angeles Poverty Department produces the Festival for All Skid Row Artists in Gladys Park on Skid Row (corner 6th Street and Gladys Avenue). The Festival encourages known neighborhood artists and identifies and brings together arts makers who are unknown even in their own Skid Row neighborhood. LAPD collects information about the artists, documents their work and creates an artists’ registry.
This year’s festival is made possible by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the California Arts Council’s Local Impact grant, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council and the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks.
