The free weekend event is presented as part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the opening of the Getty Center in Los Angeles.

Upcoming festivals in July are in El Monte and Wilmington, and 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 “Astrofengaiá” by Dina Fisher, “The Word on the Street” by Scott Froschauer, “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 students have a chance to take lessons in costume figure and portrait drawing, water color painting, spray painting and creating “little art”.

The festival continues Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 18411 Victory Blvd. Check out the art, entertainment and skating workshops (bring your own skates) info here: www.1111projects.art/getty25
