Downey Arts Coalition presented its first event of 2018, with a new series of events celebrating local art & culture: “Live Love Art,” on Sunday February 25th at The Epic Lounge.
DAC President Pat Gil conceived of the events, four seasonal celebrations of artists doing great work in our city and nearby. In the winter edition, three artists were featured: Amelie Simmons, Erika Reynosa and Chris Param. Live music was provided by the El Dorado Collective and When Pigs Fly. The main event was the premiere screening of a new short film by writer/director Paul Tully, “Crossroads.” Tully was also able to introduce his father, Paul Tully Sr., who is promoting a new book of his dramatic life story in New York, “Born a Gangster.” After the screening, the cast and crew were invited to the stage to share their stories as well.
Stay tuned for the next “Live Love Art” event coming this May, featuring a short film by Polaris Castillo, “El Luchador,” and more artists to be announced. Join our mailing list to stay informed.
