Due to the Getty Fire – 18th Street Arts Center is closing our office and our staff is working remotely from home. We advise those of you who can stay away from Santa Monica – to do so. For those of you living at 18th Street, or in the area – please stay up to date on the nearby evacuation zone. The fire is moving westward – not in the direction of 18th Street – but air quality is very poor here. You can find the live map, and the most current updates, and list of evacuation centers here: https://www.lafd.org/

We recommend having an emergency supplies kit in your car or studio for emergencies such as earthquakes and wildfires. This is a suggested list of items to have ready in case of an emergency: https://www. readyforwildfire.org/prepare- for-wildfire/get-set/ emergency-supply-kit/
