Downey Arts Coalition


Today was the inaugural meeting of the Downey Arts Coalition. The meeting, at Xela Cafe, was to discuss ideas for building support for local artists, and to explore what could be done to create a shared vision for the arts in Downey.

One of the possible areas discussed for a potential arts forum was the old art deco auditorium that stands on the abandoned section of Ranch Los Amigos. The auditorium is currently part of the area of Rancho that is boarded up and fenced off - as you can see from the sagging barbed wire fencing in the picture above.

  1. Sounds so hopeful.
    The building's painter has very artistic sense of color!
