Since its debut in 2013,  the art collective known as Inspired Women of Los Angeles has grown into a thriving community where visionary women can meet for conversation, collaboration, and inspiration. Now at over 7,800 members strong, they have extended their goal of creative encouragement by pulling together their first annual community-based project.

On Friday, May 15th, IWLA is hosting a gallery show/zine sale at Chinatown’s Exhale Unlimited Gallery in conjunction with the LAMP Arts Program. The event celebrates the release of the new art and poetry collection Together, More Alive: Works From Inspired Women of the LAMP Community.

Located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, the LAMP Arts Program is an arts studio and creativity center for the Skid Row neighborhood made possible by the LAMP Community. It offers people who are homeless, living in extreme poverty or with mental illness a safe and nurturing place for self-expression. The program also nurtures long-term participation as artists develop their individual voices, display their work, inspire one another, cultivate a community together, and make creativity a revitalizing part of their lives.

“LAMP’s Art Center is so great and they help so many people in tough times express themselves through art,” says co-host Amanda May Gavlick.

Doors open at 7pm while live readings of poetry and prose submissions will begin at 8:30pm. All donations and sales will go towards purchasing supplies for the LAMP Community Arts Program. Come celebrate a night of art and philanthropy!
