Free community-wide arts opportunities broaden throughout LB with A LOT initiative

Through the A LOT inititative, a community-wide project presented by the Arts Council for Long Beach (ACLB) in collaboration with partners throughout the city, residents will have more opportunities to enjoy and engage in the arts. A LOT broadens audience and artist engagement, linking arts and culture with local neighborhoods. Through music, dance, theatre and numerous other art forms, A LOT presents free arts experiences on vacant lots in traditionally underserved areas of the city.
During the weekend of Sept. 20, 21 and 22, there will be numerous arts activities throughout the city.
A LOT Downtown will be located at Renaissance High School for the Arts, 235 E 8th St., with free arts experiences Friday, Sept. 20 from 6pm to 9pm and Saturday, Sept. 21 from 3pm to 10pm.
“I am extremely pleased to partner with the Arts Council for Long Beach and support A LOT’s vision to increase arts awareness in our city,” said Quentin Brown, principal at Renaissance High School for the Arts, which is the only visual- and performing-arts magnet high school in Long Beach.
John Glaza, executive director at the Arts Council for Long Beach, said the partnership is a no-brainer. “We’re so lucky to have Renaissance involved as we continue to make the arts more accessible to the community,” he said.
A LOT North will launch on Sunday, Sept. 22 at Artesia Boulevard and Atlantic Avenue. With the work of varied community partners and artists, A LOT North will feature dance, music, nature, and a drum circle paired with local cuisine. Ample free parking will be available, and programs will run from noon to 4pm.
