11 projects celebrate art at Reseda Summer Arts Festival – Daily News

The first of the Getty 25’s two-day “Reseda Summer Arts Festival” on Saturday, July 9, featured art installations, hands-on art workshops, an art market, live music performances, an immersive digital experience of the Getty Center’s art collections, and entertainment with roller skating at the Reseda Recreation Center.

The free weekend event is presented as part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the Getty Center in Los Angeles. The Getty’s festival program to showcase art in 10 communities in the greater Los Angeles area began in May with festivals in Inglewood and Lincoln Heights/East Los Angeles, continuing through June, including a festival in Pacoima. Upcoming festivals in July are in El Monte and Wilmington and Crenshaw and Watts in August.

Each festival has a community partner, and for Reseda, the partner is 11:11 Projects.

Thought-provoking art installations this weekend include “Astrofengaiá” by Dina Fisher, “The Word on the Street” by Scott Froschauer, “Am I Weird?” by Simonette Jackson, “*Hugs*” by Robin Sanford, “Community Yarn Garden” by Julie Kornblum and The Oneness Project, a collaborative community project, by Suori McEachern.

Festival goers have the chance to take classes in costume figure and portrait painting, watercolor painting, spray painting and making ‘small items’.

The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at 18411 Pobeda Blvd. See information on art workshops, entertainment and roller skating (bring your roller skates) here: www.1111projects.art/getty25
