Better Together: a Virtual Showcase and Collaboration with L.A. GOAL
April 28, 2021 @ 8:00 am - May 1, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Since 2016, Helms Bakery District has hosted an annual integrative art exhibit each spring that showcases the artwork of L.A. GOAL artists and artwork from L.A. GOAL Staff members and Volunteers. This collaboration is always such a treat as L.A. GOAL and Helms Bakery District introduce our ever-growing communities to one another through our shared passion (art & design) and an in-person exhibition/reception.
Although this last year we have been unable to partner for what would normally be an in-person event, one thing has remained true: We Are Better Together. The community partnership between Helms Bakery District and L.A. GOAL has remained strong, and although so much has changed over this past year, we are collaborating in the form of a virtual art showcase featuring functional artwork for the home & garden. The virtual art showcase begins on April 28th and runs through June 5th, an entire month to find ways to support L.A. GOAL and their mission.
We hope you will help us kick off this fun collaboration on May 1st for a FREE Virtual Community Art Class titled: Create Your Own Dream Space with artist Dani Samson.
Working together as community partners we can teach the world about how the people we meet can better our lives, creating a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable art & design sector through our continued collaboration. We Are Better Together.
ABOUT L.A. GOAL
L.A. GOAL provides opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities to increase their independence and employability through educational, vocational and recreational programs. L.A. GOAL’s art and outreach activities educate the community about the abilities of people with disabilities. Our vision is to create a more open society where people with developmental disabilities can enjoy full inclusion in their communities. To accomplish this, L.A. GOAL teaches the world about how people with developmental disabilities can better our lives. It is a magical reciprocity that we believe has long been overlooked.
