Celebrating MLK's legacy with Art Active LA and the Leimert Park Funk Orchestra

Whether through painting, music, or a combination of the two, art makes us feel free! In honor this year’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day, our Leimert Park program hub - alongside our friends at Art Active LA - hosted a reflective afternoon potluck with family and community members.

Jazz and Funk

Our Leimert Park Funk Orchestra provided cool jazz and funk covers of popular songs throughout the afternoon, highlighting compositions from Black musicians across the Americas.

Arts and Crafts

Art Active LA fuses the arts and mindfulness to create a refreshing approach to arts education for youth. With help from Apple community volunteers, musicians and community members were led through Dr. King-inspired painting and sculpting activities.

Alumni in Action

Before closing out the program, Harmony Project Alumni took the stage with their band, Colors, which has a mission to promote diversity through musical collaboration.
