Art and Culture in Our Own Backyard

On Friday, September 28, we transformed the Van Nuys Civic Center into the biggest arts festival my District has ever seen. With help from the Department of Cultural Affairs, Dyson & Womack, my staff, and so many more, we packed the Civic Center with music, food trucks, live performances, art-making, craft vendors, a beer garden, and more than can fit in this little article.

I am always eager to showcase the artwork, music, and talent the Valley has to offer. It is important to me that we recognize we can see great art and music right here in our community. I am proud to say, although it was only the second Arts Festival we have hosted thus far, that it is a tradition that will be continued. Thank you to everyone who came out, and we hope to see you all again next year!
