2022 MLK Day of Service – Expo Art Center

2022 MLK Day of Service


Expo Arts Center Interior Paint Project



Finding ways to serve our community, despite these unique times

Join us to make it a “Day On, not a Day Off,” on Saturday, April 23rd  as part of the MLK National Day of Service in Long Beach.

The Need We Serve:

This once empty furniture warehouse has been transformed into a community arts hub. The Expo Arts Center serves as a cultural center, art gallery, music performances, and community theater.

How to Serve:

Join us by helping to provide this space with a much-needed make-over. A fresh coat of paint and a new mural will have this space looking like new.

If you are interested in helping, sign up here:
