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.
We will always remember Linda Harris, who passed away this summer.
She was a long time member of LAPD and traveled with us to Rotterdam to perform HOSPITAL.
She also was the inspiration for our performance CHASING MONSTERS FROM UNDER THE BED, because that’s exactly what she did. A beautiful woman, who reminds us to always be optimistic and – no matter what – to never complain and just LOVE LIFE!
Here she is performing her favorite song “I Hope You Dance” at the Festival For All Skid Row Artists in 2014.
