Walking Tours, Murals-in-the-Making, Music, Neighborhood Stories & A Pop-Up Filipino Ice Cream Jeepney
Since 2015, more than 80 artists from all over the world have come to LA’s Historic Filipinotown to transform the neighborhood’s alleys, buildings, and parking lots into the city’s most comprehensive outdoor art gallery. The concentration of murals—over 100 and counting—has turned the area into an international street art destination, with new visitors walking the sidewalks every weekend.
On Saturday, August 27, join de LaB, Gabba Gallery, and Hidden Hi Fi as we learn more about how these murals came to be and how they fit in to Hi Fi’s vibrant cultural legacy. In addition to a walking tour of the murals by the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles—including one mural-in-progress!—the Gabba Gallery will be open for viewings of its new show “Crate Digger: The Lost Art of Album Cover Art,” and the Pilipino Workers Center and Public Matters will be on-site with their blinged-out Jeepney to share more about Hi Fi’s history while serving up delicious Filipino ice cream.
Join us for a wonderful afternoon celebrating the generous artists and longtime locals who are making Hi Fi one of LA’s most exciting neighborhoods.
Hidden Hi Fi is supported by the Department of Cultural Affairs City of Los Angeles, and Center for Cultural Innovation’s 2016 Creative Economic Development Fund grant. Public Matters is a project of the Pasadena Arts Council’s EMERGE Fiscal Sponsorship Program.
Thanks to Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and CD 13 for their support!
