In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Getty Center, the Getty Trust and a diverse group of community partners are launching a 10-part series of free outdoor art festivals in neighborhoods across Los Angeles County from May 14 to August 28.

Each festival, produced by Community Arts Resources, will be a unique reflection of the community in which it takes place.

The first festival, Getty 25 Celebrates Inglewood, kicks off Saturday, May 14, and Sunday, May 15, at Inglewood City Hall from 11am to 6pm. Organized in partnership with Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Youth Orchestra Los Angeles, the Inglewood festival will feature artists from the Inglewood area, including Katalyst, DJ Qwesscoast, Voices of Creation, S.H.I.N.E. Muwasi, Godfrey at Large, Kayla Salisbury, DJ Jeli, Chris Emile & No)one. Art House, and more. Activations will take place throughout the weekend, from Kemetic Yoga to ceramic workshops. Food and drinks will be available for purchase from a variety of food trucks, including Inglewood’s Mr. Fries Man.

The festivals will offer music and dance performances, and fun activities for all ages, including interactive workshops, a photo booth, giveaways, an immersive digital experience of Getty’s museum collections, and more.

The festivals are being held to celebrate the cultural richness of these 10 communities and to say “thank you” to Los Angeles for 25 years of supporting the Getty Center. More than a dozen neighborhood nonprofits and cultural organizations are partnering with Getty to organize the festivals, celebrating the art, artists, and culture of each neighborhood.
