    i agree with what has been written. I was told about this idea months ago and at that time expressed my idea of letting local artists, especiLly those from our local high schools, show what they are all about. There of course would be recommendations from the art teachers, and guidelines with some approval, and I was told that that would be a good idea. The murals were to be about $4k each and the heater boxes @ $2k… For a city that is trying to break into being a city of the future we are still in the past.
    Having lived here all my life and hearing the complaints from my parents, things are still the same. You have people who cannot move on, or are not willing to. And there are those who want all the control…PLEASE don’t let Downey remain in the dark ages… Let us “grow up”!!

    So, when will this community arts space make its way into Downey?? We all know Downtown Downey is dead, it’s time to do something about it. Art changes everything, so let’s make it happen, Downey!!

      Right on! All it takes is we write a proposal, come up with a budget, plan of operations, building design, program design, recruit partners, write grants, approach private donors, work with the city, and voila, we have ourselves a downtown arts center. Would love your help if you’re up to it. ajw AT downeyarts.org
