The Reseda Rising Artwalk and Night Market, on Saturday, June 4, was a community celebration to kick off the revitalization of the Sherman Way corridor in Reseda. Sherman Way is one of the 15 L.A. streets designated as part of Mayor Eric Garcetti's Great Streets Initiative, which aims “to help reimagine neighborhood centers, one main street at a time.” Artists painted live on Sherman Way, vendors sold handmade products, San Fernando Valley breweries kept cold beer flowing on a hot day, and local music acts played on multiple stages. Reseda Rising was produced by 11:11 ACC, a collective dedicated to connecting artists with the community, along with the office of City Council member Bob Blumenfield and the Department of Cultural Affairs.
