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 Hops arts offered every week at MacArthur Park. Master aerosol artists and JUiCE facilitators 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 from JUiCE’s resident DJ’s while rhythmic words from emcees harmonize with the beats coming from the live drummer. The break dance footwork battle drew much excitement and brought the spirit of competition to the open dance floor. The video showcases the dance footwork battle at this event.
