During the event, the City of Los Angeles will close 3rd Avenue south of Rose Avenue and north of Sunset Avenue for live painting on temporarily installed art walls and structures. This street, the former location of a notorious homeless encampment prior to Councilmember Park and Mayor Bass’ efforts through the “Inside Safe” program, will transform with creative energy, music and positive activity in an example of how communities can positively re-imagine and energize unused space.

About Earth Day

The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970, when Gaylord Nelson, the United States Senator from Wisconsin organized a national demonstration to raise awareness about environmental issues. Rallies took place across the country and, by the end of the year, the U.S. government under President Richard Nixon had created the Environmental Protection Agency. Today, Earth Day is widely recognized as the largest secular observance in the world, marked by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behavior and create global, national and local policy changes..
