Arts Council for Long Beach Selects Four Local Artists for Community Corners Project

The Arts Council for Long Beach (ArtsLB) is pleased to announce the selection of four talented artists for the Community Corners Project. The art installation will be at the intersection of 15th Street and Chestnut Avenue to improve street safety, revitalize public space, and engage the local community. The artists chosen for this project are Drea, Fuzz Garden, Rebekah Rose, and Sunflowerhues.

The Community Corners project is a collaborative effort between the Arts Council for Long Beach and the City of Long Beach. This project aims to enhance the visual appeal of the city’s public spaces by featuring art installations to beautify and improve the streets.

“We are here to uplift and beautify the Washington Community and encourage careful driving in the neighborhood, as well as make it a lot safer for children,” said Teri Erby, Washington community leader.

“Our goal through the Community Corners Project is to celebrate and promote artists with a deep connection to neighborhoods of Long Beach,” said Griselda Suárez, Executive Director of ArtsLB. “This project allows our community to reenvision their streets and engage in art daily.” 

To facilitate the project, a traffic advisory has been issued for pedestrians and vehicles from May 1-5, 2023. We encourage all residents and visitors to take extra care and caution when traveling in these areas during this time. As well as when seeking alternate routes to their destination.

The painting dates for the project have been set for May 2nd and 3rd. During these days, the selected artists will work on their respective installations at the designated street corners. The public is invited to witness these talented artists’ creative process as they bring their vision to life.

Bloomberg Philanthropies Asphalt Art Initiative, JAG Foundation, and the Southern California Association of Governments proudly funded this project. The Arts Council for Long Beach plans to celebrate the completion of the project with a public event in August 2023. More information regarding the event will be released in the coming weeks.
