Throughout the year, Inner-City Arts offers several opportunities to celebrate, support, and sponsor our work and students.

Inner-City Arts offers a range of recognition benefits afforded to our event sponsors. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Alma Villegas, Senior Director of Development.


Our downtown music, art and dance party!


One night each summer, Angelenos descend upon Inner-City Arts, turning our award-winning campus into the creative epicenter of Los Angeles. Art lovers from all over, including young professionals, Downtown residents and our friends from the neighboring Arts District converge at the corner of 7th and Kohler to celebrate the transformational power of creativity.

The event features live music on our rooftop, gourmet food trucks, drinks, open studios, art installations and more. Proceeds from this summer event support the Inner-City Arts' mission and helps provide underserved youth in Los Angeles with access to free arts education.

Past Summer on Seventh events have featured:

The Gaslamp Killer, J Rocc, The Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Ensemble, The Internet, Shura, Cut Chemist, Peanut Butter Wolf, DeeLux, dublab and more!

Past Partners & Sponsors: 

Spaceland, KCRW, LA Weekly, LA Downtowner, MOCA, The Underground Museum, 826LA, Creative Space, Hauser Wirth & Schimmel, Silverlake Wine, Everson Royce Bar, and more!


Our annual fundraiser is our chance to pay tribute to an individual, or group of individuals, whose extraordinary support enables Inner-City Arts to fulfill its mission.

Imagine Awards 2015-35

The arts and creativity are transformational, and by engaging young people in their own creative process, Inner-City Arts is helping shape a society of creative, confident and collaborative individuals.

To kick off the spring of 2023, we'll hold Soulful Sunday Gala Brunch on March 5.
