Up the street from Abbot Kinney is a run-down, abandoned jailhouse where many locals pass by on a daily basis without giving it a second thought. Inside, beautiful portraits line the walls and display one-of-a-kind photographs of African natives and Chinese mothers cradling their babies. The Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) welcomes socially and politically enthused art lovers across Venice Beach to view the cultural works of art. SPARC works to preserve LA’s social-political murals and prevent them from being simply discarded and become forgotten history. By hosting musical events, blues and folk musicians, featuring their very own resident of Skid Row, SPARC encourages locals to hear the compelling messages expressed from locals and view the unique photography, which captures never-before-seen culture around the world. Instead of walking to a breakfast café on Abbot Kinney or driving down to the ocean side, one will discover the immense beauty behind the doors of an old jailhouse on Venice Boulevard.
