The other night I went to a fundraising even at Inner-City Arts in Downtown LA. Inner City Arts is a program provides arts exposure and education to kids, most of whom live within a few miles of the school -- one of the more impoverished and under-served areas in the county (although there is at least one student who’s bussed in all the way from Pomona).

The Inner-City Arts campus was designed by Michael Maltzan, whose Los Feliz-based firm is also responsible for Westwood’s Billy Wilder Theater, part of Pasadena's Art Center College of Design and several housing units for the formerly homeless.
