Annual State of the Arts to Honor Contributors to the Cultural Spirit of Long Beach

Release Date: 2017-09-29

On Thursday, October 5 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM, all are invited to the Arts Council for Long Beach’s annual State of the Arts event in partnership with the Office of Mayor Robert Garcia at The Packard. This year’s theme is Arts Rising, celebrating the work that Long Beach Unified School District, Long Beach City College and Cal State Long Beach do for arts education.

“Arts education is the foundation for creating a dynamic arts audience in Long Beach,” Tasha Hunter, board president for the Arts Council, said in a statement. “The more engaged our students are, the better our creative economy is in the future.”

The yearly event brings together residents, the creative community and city leaders to not only celebrate the arts, but also to honor individuals who make a positive impact on the arts and cultural fabric of Long Beach.
