  1. In a sea of great charity options to support in L.A. “INNER CITY ARTS” is literally the difference between; a “life in art ” or, a “life on the mean streets” of the city for several hundred thousand @ risk children. How can you “NOT” love a program that is changing lives and empowering youth thru art! My friends, Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat come to mind as examples of young people who brought art from the streets to the Museum, and “proved” creating and selling original art gives “unlimited possibilities” for children who are encouraged to “believe in themselves” and to “create!” BRAVO INNER CITY ARTS PROGRAM!
