Community Mosaic Workshop
Join Piece by Piece and Crescent Farm for an opportunity to contribute to the Crescent’s community stepping stone mosaic project! Crescent Farm’s stepping stones serve as gateway to the garden, drawing eyes, and visually reinforcing the ecological concepts at the heart of the Crescent’s mission. While you will be learning from professional mosaic artists, this isn’t your typical individual-oriented art class; this is a space to engage in collaborative creation, working together to construct the artistic foundations of one of the Arboretum’s most impactful gardens!

Check out this recent testimonial: ‘[The UVP] choir sang, warmed our hearts with your personal stories and brought tears to my eyes. The choir is the light that brought the members out of darkness. Love and a sense of community and purpose transformed the members. Homelessness is about real people having fallen into bad times. Through music your group will change people's view of homelessness. Thank you.’“

Join us at the opening night at Castelli Art Space for the exhibit "Art with a (Re)Purpose".
“The exhibit, which focuses on mixed media and sculptural work utilizing recycled and reclaimed materials, from old wood to scrap metal, ceramics and jewelry, to discarded electronics, speaks to the importance of minding our carbon footprint, and remembering that recycling should be a way of life. As one man’s trash becomes another’s treasure, we should pay attention to our refuse, and find a way to re-purpose certain materials rather than adding to a trash heap or ocean pollution."

Join us at the book launch party for Dear Seller
We are grateful to be selected as a partner for Narrated Object’s new book. A percentage of the proceeds will be going to support our organization.
There is a small feature in the book with photos of Piece by Piece artwork.
Dear Seller: Real Estate Love Letters from Los Angeles features memorable letters by individuals who attempted to capture the hearts of home sellers with their words in order to win the bidding war for the home of their dreams. Each letter paints a portrait of its author: his or her family, background, and values, using social capital as well as actual capital in an effort to be selected. Through interviews and written accounts, you will follow these homeseekers from the moment they saw their perfect homes to what happened after they submitted their letters.

Join us in supporting three of our Piece by Piece artists at the third annual Office Hours exhibition. Enjoy an evening at the Main Museum with a hosted bar, music, and community.
Each fall since opening in 2016, The Main Museum has hosted Office Hours, a program that invites fifty Downtown L.A.–based artists to meet one-on-one with Allison Agsten, director of The Main, on a first-come, first-served basis, to discuss their work. At the culmination of each appointment, artists are invited to hang their art, or documentation of it, as part of an eponymous group exhibition. Now in its third iteration and with a total of 150 participants, Office Hours has helped forge crucial connections among artists who have met through the program, led to gallery presentation of work introduced here, and inspired similar initiatives elsewhere.
In this year’s Office Hours, three of our artists will be part of this exhibit. Join us and celebrate Mike, Terry, and Vicki’s artwork.
The Fair brings together legal aid organizations, government agencies, social services and community-based groups to provide free services, information and classes for the public. All workshops, classes and services are free and open to the public.
Stop by our booth and learn about mosaic art while creating a collaborative mosaic with the us.
