Description of the meaning behind what I painted onto the angel

Los Angeles Dreams 

My vision is that we honor and create spaces that have access to fresh organic food, green spaces where both humans and animal life can coexist. I dream of a county where you have access to public transportation, bike lanes, walkable streets, and affordable housing for all individuals. I dream that LA is a place where children can succeed in education, from their first days in pre-K to a Ph.D in college. I envision neighborhoods having access to organic gardens, community spaces, art centers, creative entrepreneurship, and a path to citizenship. The diversity of this county is an incredible asset and it makes it a very unique place where people from all over the world come to make home and dream big.

 

 

About We Are Los Angeles

 

With the belief that art can move, challenge and inspire us, the California Community Foundation commissioned 30 L.A. County-based artists to create art that explores pressing issues facing our region. The We Are Los Angeles exhibit of angel sculptures will be unveiled on November 12 at a special event open to the public at Grand Park on Downtown Los Angeles, featuring music, poetry and dance, and will be on display through November 17. The sculptures are inspired by CCF’s priorities for creating impact in the areas of the arts, civic engagement, education, health, housing, immigrant integration and youth empowerment. Together they represent the collective diversity and strength of Los Angeles.
