Celebrating Getty25 in Koreatown 

July 7, 2022
Wallis Annenberg GenSpace helped celebrate 25 years of The Getty at their Koreatown Festival!  

The Getty Center and its associated programs are dedicated to promoting visual arts in LA. For 25 years, the philanthropic organization has hosted public and professional events for all ages, with The Getty Museum at the apex of LA’s art scene for decades.

In celebration of 25 years, The Getty is hosting a series of events this summer – titled Getty25. Each event focuses on a unique part of LA County. All ten celebrations will be held in different neighborhoods and include art festivals, live performances, street vendors, and more.

One of the events was held at Liberty Park on June 11th and 12th, and included members of the Koreatown community to honor the region’s history and culture. GenSpace was honored to attend the event and spread the word about our new, innovative space for older adults. We were joined by our friends at the Koreatown Youth & Community Center (KYCC), the Karsh Center, and the Pio Pico Library, who all hosted booths and tables at the festival. 

The weekend event included staged and interactive experiences with roughly two dozen local vendors selling food, art, and other items. About 200 people stopped by GenSpace’s booth where staff members highlighted GenSpace’s programming and class schedule. GenSpace Occupational Therapy interns were also there to provide insight about the support they can provide members to address movement challenges.

GenSpace is proud to call Koreatown home. We’ll continue to attend local events like this one to connect with our neighbors and ensure our programming reflects the interests of our community. Learn more about GenSpace’s classes and upcoming events!
