Artwork will be organized “salon style” according to color, shape and theme and displayed along the chain-link fence across from Homeboy Industries headquarters on 130 West Bruno Street downtown, from 8 a.m. until noon. About 120 pieces of art are anticipated to be on display, including 4 donated prints from Shepard Fairey that will also be for sale. As a gift of generosity, 30% of all proceeds from art sales (and 100% of Shepard Fairey print sales) will go directly to Homeboy’s social programs, which include job training and placement, legal aid, parenting classes and tattoo removal.

In conjunction with the show, a live art event will occur at the starting line of the 5k run/walk, in which Homeboy Industries Resident Artist and Substance Abuse Counselor Fabian Debora will help attendees create an “Every Angeleno Counts”-themed chalk mural on the spot.

The art show and community event (featuring pre-race yoga, rappers, DJs, dancers and the brand-new Homeboy Food Truck) will begin at 8 a.m. and continue until 12 p.m.

To date, event sponsors and partners include Anthem Blue Cross, Beach Point Capital, City Councilman Gil Cedillo, Clear Channel Outdoor, HUMAN: A Live Communications Group, KCRW 89.9, LA Metro, LA Weekly, UBER and Northgate Gonzalez Markets.
