Skid Row History Museum & Archive
440 South Spring Street
Downtown’s Skid Row is one of the most fascinating and misunderstood neighborhoods in L.A. Among its many successes has been the commitment shown by its residents and activists to the cultural life of the area. A leader in using visual and performing arts as a conduit for change, the L.A. Poverty Department has been a pioneer in this creative crusade — and is about to realize one of its longest-held dreams.
The Skid Row History Museum and Archive is launching as a permanent physical and digital archive of the powerful artistry of the generations who have called this place home. Following the opening of its first exhibit, “Blue Book/Silver Book,” a series of screenings, exhibitions and performances keeps the conversation going.
