Huizar worked with Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell to overhaul the City’s Arts Development Fee system, which designates how and where developers pay into arts fees. Through this revamped legislation, millions of dollars more are now dedicated to public art throughout the City of Los Angeles. And Councilmember Huizar single-handedly led an effort that has resulted in an explosion of hundreds of “mini murals” on electrical boxes throughout the City.
Councilmember Huizar believes strongly in creating and supporting local and Citywide cultural events that help us celebrate what it means to be a member of our local communities and who we are as Angelenos. He brought back incredibly popular fireworks shows to Boyle Heights, El Sereno and Eagle Rock after 30-plus year absences, and supports holiday tree-lightings and rich Veterans tributes, and honors each segment of society with special events like our top students with his Adelante Awards, and the Senior Snowball, honoring CD14 seniors.
Councilmember has worked with the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts to make the Eagle Rock Music Festival the most popular Northeast LA festival. And in creating the Night on Broadway street and theater Festival on Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles, Councilmember Huizar has created a homage to Los Angeles’ incredibly rich history and an opportunity for a quarter of a million Angelenos to embrace and celebrate that history.
From Downtown, to Boyle Heights, El Sereno and Northeast LA, and through the City, Huizar has dedicated his tenure in office to bolstering access to arts and culture for all Angelenos.
