Arts organizations will kick off the third annual LA Arts Month with a free, public performance by David Hidalgo and Louie Perez of Los Lobos at noon on Wednesday, January 5, on the Music Center Plaza. Also presented will be selections from Evangeline, the Queen of Make-Believe, a theaterwork co-written by Perez and produced by About Productions.
The event will also feature booths offering information about arts events and special offers, and an opportunity to participate in a free, fun, highly interactive arts activity. A variety of food selections will be available on the Plaza for the lunchtime crowd.LA Arts Month is a collaborative effort by arts organizations to encourage residents and visitors to seek out cultural experiences throughout the month of January: from visiting a local gallery or museum; enjoying a theatrical, dance, or musical performance; or getting a taste of a multi-cultural festival.
Through community outreach, local promotional ticket giveaways, and a viral word-of-mouth campaign, LA Arts Month encourages Angelenos to enjoy the best art the world has to offer, without leaving the city. LA Arts Month takes place from January 1-31, 2011. For programming information please visit www.laartsmonth.org.
