The SKID ROW ARTS MAP has been developed by Skid Row arts organizations: Urban Voices Project, Los Angeles Poverty Department, Studio 526, Street Symphony, Piece by Piece and Skid Row Coffee with the generous support of USC’s Arts in Action program. The map was presented on October 18, 2019 at the Skid Row History Museum & Archive. It puts the sites of all arts activities that are free and open to everyone in the community on the map — so that everyone can find them and participate. The Skid Row Arts MAP is designed to make it easy for people living in Skid Row — even if you’re a new arrival — to connect with other Skid Row artists and the arts activities that are open to everyone in Skid Row. Come on by, get your copy – or copies – of the map and go forth and create.
