Streetfilms with Español: ArtCycle 2009
Just as advertising and promotion for the 2011 East Hollywood ArtCycle are kicking into high gear, our friend David Barboza has added Spanish subtitles to Streetfilms’ take on the 2009 ArtCycle.
ArtCycle is an amazing event put on by the East Hollywood Neighborhood Council and a slew of co-sponsors including our friends the Greensters. This year’s event will run from 2:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. on September 17 on Santa Monica Blvd. between Vermont Ave. and Virgil Ave. In their own words:
ArtCycle is a street fair with a decidedly do-it-yourself artistic twist. Everything from the planning to setting up to holding the event is done with grass roots participation by denizens of East Hollywood, one of the most diverse and eclectic neighborhoods in all of Los Angeles. Activities such as “stamping parties” to create handmade fliers to publicize ArtCycle to mass-participation street art projects on the day of the event all help to bring together the many elements of a vibrant community.
I missed the 2010 event, but the 2009 version, the one that met in the Bicycle District, was really a unique and fun event, and the above film by the visiting Clarence Eckerson really captures the spirit of the day.
