Long before MOCA's Art in the Streets show opened, Los Angeles's Downtown Arts District already had more than a few monumental works of street art on display with a little help from a group named LA Freewalls. Anyone can see this art in its natural environment for free, but this Saturday at Bloomfest LA, a guided tour of the neighborhood's many elaborately embellished industrial buildings will be led by Daniel Lahoda, curator of LA Freewalls.
Summer's in full swing, and without any of that icky humidity you might find in other places this time of year. So why not get out and enjoy Los Angeles this weekend? Check out yet another place to see a movie under the stars, climb atop a statue designed by Miranda July, or hike through the ever-changing community of Boyle Heights.

Friday Flicks in Pershing Square: As if you didn't have enough places to watch movies outside! Last week kicked off another series of outdoor film screenings, this one at downtown's Pershing Square park. No alcohol allowed (booo), but you can bring picnics, and the backdrop of glittery skyscrapers against the darkening summer sky can't be beat. The theme for the summer is the "silliest, funniest, most over-acted films" of all time. This Friday is Young Sherlock Holmes. Next week, Mommie Dearest. Friday, 8:00 p.m.
We've long been fans of The People's Fleet, a program sponsored by Ford that puts cars into the hands of worthy nonprofits across the city. As part of the program's presence here in L.A., The People's Fleet is hosting a series of events that bring local nonprofits together with the community. GOOD LA is happy to co-sponsor these four gatherings, which will each feature a speaker and opportunities for action.
