LA Poverty Department's "Skid Row History Museum" was installed at The Box Gallery , in Chinatown from June 28 through August 2, 2008.
This "museum" is temporary and is a planning phase for a permanent "museum' in the form of a series of public artworks that would acknowledge the cultural contribution to the city of people who have lived and worked in Skid Row LA and recognize the history and shifting contours of the area.
A major part of this exhibition are events that include public discussions with key figures of the Skid Row community, musical and dramatic performances and workshops for Skid Row residents.
