The Music Center's "For the Love of L.A.", designed to celebrate the creativity of Los Angeles and support L.A.-based artists representing the disciplines of music, dance, visual culture and more.
Featured on both The Music Center’s social channels and The Music Center Offstage—the organization’s virtual platform offering newly curated programming including the commission and presentation of original artwork—For the Love of L.A. will provide more than 35 L.A. artists with a platform to express their views of Los Angeles that are relevant and reflective of the current time through video (e.g. documentation of a performance), photography (e.g. art photography, photo essay or documentation of another visual artform) and creative writing. The Music Center partnered with numerous long-time partners from the L.A. arts and culture community to serve as guest curators, who each identified local artists and then worked with them to create original work for the program.
The Music Center will post up to three new works of art on The Music Center’s Instagram every Tuesday from August 11, 2020–October 27, 2020, showcasing more than 35 individual works over the 13-week period. The public can get a closer look at each artist through biographies and statements alongside the complete version of the artwork in a digital library on The Music Center Offstage. In addition, the initiative also aims to inspire the public to engage and participate directly by contributing their own For the Love of L.A. creative endeavors and projects some audience-generated content may be selected and shared in the arts organization’s social channels.
