WE RISE L.A. is a public event celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month, with the keenest knack for expressing its message with art. A bright and beautiful, candid and affecting installation of work by scores of contemporary artists anchors its ten-day residence in the DTLA Arts District. Featuring work by huge stars and talented amateurs, the show is a curated selection of diverse styles.

From the abstract to the narrative in mediums from photography and painting to sculpture, site-specific installation and street art, in context each contributes to an intuitive, profound understanding of the array of experiences and emotions surrounding mental health, mental illness and paths to wellness.

But it’s the exceptionally salient and eclectic slate of public programs that really activate the promised Festival of Wellbeing at the core of the WE RISE mission. Every single day brings multiple public engagements, from concerts to poetry slams, silk-screening sessions to independent DJs, group stress relief, and profound panel conversations centering on progressive, on-the-ground policy-making.

All art installations and programs are free and open to the public.

WE RISE L.A. happens at 1262 Palmetto St. in downtown from Saturday, May 18 through Monday, May 27, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. weekends (including Memorial Day), and 5 p.m.-10 p.m. weekdays.
