DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – Downtown’s South Park is seeing explosive business and residential growth, and the South Park Business Improvement District has helped shape that development while also providing security and cleaning services in the neighborhood.

The BID this week is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and the public is invited to the art-themed party. The BID, along with the Do Art Foundation and the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles, is hosting an event on Tuesday, Aug. 18, from 5-8 p.m. It features a tour of the neighborhood’s public artworks, which includes a series of utility boxes newly printed with abstract images from local artist Sheri Neva. There will also be a street festival with live music and a number of artists, including Downtown muralist Kent Twichell. The free celebration takes place at and around 1147 S. Hope St. More information is at southpark.la.
