This Spring Fairfax students participated in Greenway’s Arts Integration Program both during and after school in an effort to gain design and real life marketing skills as they helped create, stage and implement storefront displays for empty business spaces along Melrose. In collaboration with the Melrose Business Improvement District (Melrose BID) the students were able to meet with business owners and research the type of stores that wanted student participation in order to design meaningful and eye-catching displays.

Greenway congratulates all of the students that were a part of the process to create an even more thriving and exciting Melrose shopping experience.

#ArtsThriveThursday Featured Student- Artist: Jenny Herrera

Greenway Institute for the Arts proudly presents the work and accomplishments of Jenny Herrera as our first ever #ARTS THRIVE THURSDAY featured student- artist.

Jenny Herrera is a student at Fairfax Senior High. Currently in her last semester of school, Jenny has experienced art in many forms, including sculpture, photography, painting, and drawing. During her time outside of school, she is constantly thinking of ways to involve art in her everyday life. “Art is more than just a hobby or a talent, it’s everything around us,” she says. She was inspired by her father, Manuel Herrera, who spent his youth drawing cartoons. Her long-term goals involve her artwork, and she hopes one day to apply her talent towards our community using mixed media.

Congratulations Jenny! Catch her art on Instagram and Twitter @greenwayartsed

Greenway Go!

homepage-brandGreenway GO was designed to provide access to and engagement in the arts to the Los Angeles community. By building on current initiatives, we envision the program as a vital entry point for students and the community to experience a variety of art events for free or for a very low cost. Greenway GO is part of a larger, evolving effort to engage in creative placemaking, accessibility, and true community building through the arts. As Greenway continues to grow and explore a new model for how arts, education and social enterprise can work together to help organizations remain both relevant and economically viable, it is simultaneously important that we find ways to include access points for community members who may be shut out by traditional pricing, location and lack of connection to the art itself.

Our current assets for this initiative are:

  1. The Greenway Court Theatre – Greenway curates a season of theatrical experiences at that include co-productions, original works and curated presented offerings.
  2. Melrose Trading Post – art-based marketplace held every Sunday at Fairfax High School. Greenway’s signature social enterprise program.
  3. Da’ Poetry Lounge is a low-cost, open mic’ poetry and spoken word event produced every Tuesday night, and is the largest, longest-running and most diverse weekly spoken word event in the country, engaging poets of all ages and backgrounds in this standing-room only event. DPL served as one of the inspirations for Russell Simmons’ Tony-awarding winning Def Poetry Jam.
  4. InkSlam – an annual festival of workshops and poetry competitions for all ages, that attracts local and national poets to this popular, three-day event.
