Join us for our third Little Tokyo Artist Convening, bringing together traditional and contemporary artists who identify with our Little Tokyo community.
For this meeting, we will have an informal conversation about:
- How SLT can support local artist
- How artists can help sustain the art, culture, and history of Little Tokyo amidst the wave of downtown redevelopment
- And we'll be sharing some ideas for open submission community art projects, such as the Windows for Little Tokyo, a neighborhood-wide pop-up exhibition in storefront windows to support local businesses, and JACCC Plaza installations and events!
In past convenings, artists identified exhibition and work space as their greatest need. We chose the neglected Azusa Street, and created two pop-up installations with murals, sculptures, participatory art, mobile seating, and a community garden! SLT artists have also painted community-specific art on utility boxes and our JACCC kiosk on Hashimoto Plaza, and created #MyFSN posters to draw attention to the First Street North campaign for community-centered development!
