Justice by Uniting in Creative Energy (JUiCE) “Hip Hop in the Park” community event unites Los Angeles’s culturally diverse neighborhoods through Hip Hop. The free event was held to showcase works from JUiCE participants and to invite the larger community to share in the Hip Hop arts offered every week at MacArthur Park. Master aerosol artists finished the event with a community themed mural on recycled pulp art boards and worked alongside youths to learn basic painting techniques. Sounds of music echoed the streets while rhythmic words from emcees harmonize with the beats coming from the live drummer. The dance battle drew much excitement and brought the spirit of competition. The video showcases the dance battle at this event.
