This Wednesday, the Arts Community is coming to LACMA for a Supervisor Candidate Forum on Culture & Creativity at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Bing Theatre.
The next County Supervisor for the 3rd District will replace Zev Yaroslavsky, who, among other accomplishments, has been a huge advocate for the arts, including the LA County Arts Commission and its many initiatives like Arts for All.
It's crucial to demonstrate that the arts community is engaged, organized, and eager to advocate for creativity, arts education, and public investment in arts and culture.
The Forum is free and open to the public, though pre-registration is required.
Arts for LA does not endorse candidates; however, we are invested in fostering an engaged voter population, and we want our voters to know where their candidates stand on the issues of arts, culture, and arts education.
Casual networking will begin at 6 p.m., at which time guests may purchase beverage from Coffee + Milk near the Bing Theatre. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the Forum will begin at 7:15 p.m. Eligible candidates seeking election to Los Angeles County's Third District have been invited to participate. Dr. Frank Gilliam of UCLA will serve as the Forum's moderator.
