We are committed to sustaining affordable housing and an inspiring place to create and build community.

This event was made possible, in part, by grants from the Arts District Little Tokyo Neighborhood Council, City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Council District 14, LARABA and the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture. Art Share L.A. would like to thank these, and our other generous sponsors for helping support emerging artists and the creation of a culturally rich, vibrant arts community.
