Description:

The Los Angeles Festival was born of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games and a progressive Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee. Mandated by the International Olympic Committee to coincide with the Games, the 1984 Olympic Arts Festival in Los Angeles was host to 145 performing arts companies and 1500 international artists who took part in more than 400 performances, exhibitions, and events. Over 1.2 million people attended, establishing the Olympic Arts Festival as the largest international event of its kind in the United States. Directed by Peter Sellars, one of the world's most renowned opera directors, the Los Angeles Festival was dedicated to the cultural remapping of Los Angeles. The CRA gave two grants to support the Los Angeles Festival performances in Downtown.
