Dealing Hope: Arts Council for Long Beach - April 22, 2020
From Drag Queen story time to #colorfulheroeslb coloring pages, the Arts Council for Long Beach's Keep Arts Working initiative aims to alleviate anxiety from our minds and bodies through the arts and begin to recuperate the creative economy. Artist Corie Mattie has been spreading hope in a new series of murals and paintings throughout LA Country; it’s a project she’s dubbed the LA Hope Dealer. Set against a signature backdrop of golden yellow, her message is loud and clear: “Cancel Plans, Not Humanity.” One of her murals can be viewed outside Sweet Water Saloon in the Alamitos Beach neighborhood.
