The first of two days of the Getty 25’s “Reseda Summer Art Festival” on Saturday, July 9, included art installations, hands-on art workshops, an art market, live musical performances, an immersive digital experience art collections at the Getty Center, and roller skating at the Reseda Recreation Center.

The free weekend event is presented as part of the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Getty Center in Los Angeles. The Getty’s Festival program to bring art to 10 communities in the Greater Los Angeles area began in May with festivals in Inglewood and Lincoln Heights/East Los Angeles, continued in June, including a festival in Pacoma. The next festivals in July will be in El Monte and Wilmington, and in Crenshaw and Watts in August.

Each festival has a community partner and for Reseda the partner is 11:11 Projects.

Thought-provoking art installations this weekend include Dina Fisher’s “Astrofengaiá,” Scott Froschauer’s “The Word on the Street,” “Am I Weird?” by Simonette Jackson, “*Hugs*” by Robyn Sanford, a “Community Yarn Garden” by Julie Kornblum and “The Oneness Project”, a collaborative community project, by Soori McEachearn.

Festival-goers have the chance to take classes in drawing costumed figures and portraits, watercolor painting, spray painting, and making “small arts.”

The festival continues, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at 18411 Victory Blvd. See art workshops, animations and information on roller skating (bring your own roller skates) here: www.1111projects.art/getty25
