Local Artist Sets Up Space For the People in North Long Beach Studio as Part of Summer Residency

The tiny storefront of 6021 Atlantic Avenue is nestled next to barber shops, beauty salons and a liquor store, inconspicuous as cars whiz by on the noisy North Long Beach artery during rush hour. A traditional Cambodian ceremony is taking place just inside to bless the space, which will be used for the summer by a new occupant, Long Beach artist Jason Keam.
