In celebration of the Getty Center’s 25th Anniversary, J. Paul Getty Trust is partnering up with neighborhoods across Los Angeles to produce ten bespoke community-centric festivals that embrace the local community and showcase Getty-inspired programming. The objective of Getty25 is to celebrate the joy of art throughout Los Angeles by meeting people where they live and creating enduring community partnerships for years to come.
Long Beach is Southern California’s most ethnically diverse city, containing over distinct 50 neighborhoods and half a million residents. This summer, visit North Long Beach to celebrate the richness and diversity of this cultural epicenter. Under the hundred-year-old palm trees in Houghton Park experience live music, dance performances, marching bands, interactive workshops, live artmaking, skate demonstrations, food trucks, and an artisan marketplace.
