Since 1985, the month of October has been designated by cities across the country to acknowledge the importance of culture and encourage all Americans to participate in the arts. We here at Longbeachize recognize the important role the arts play in building community and great cities.
To kick the month off, we have partnered with Pow! Wow! and the Arts Council For Long Beach on a campaign to showcase cyclist creativity. We invite you to click on the image to the left to download and print this postcard (or pick one up at one of the locations listed at the end of this post) and personalize the smiley bike with your colorful vision of biking in Long Beach. Make sure to take a picture and share with online using the hashtag #LBizeArts so we can feature your work on here and include it at our pop-up gallery at the end of the month (the secret location will be announced in the coming weeks).
For a list of Arts Events throughout the city, check out the Arts Council for Long Beach’s calendar of events. We also be featuring arts-focused stories all month, so check back often for new posts.

Free news isn’t cheap.
We believe that everyone should have access to important local news, for free.
However, it costs money to keep a local news organization like this one—independently owned and operated here in Long Beach, without the backing of any national corporation—alive.
If independent local news is important to you, please consider supporting us with a monthly or one-time contribution. Read more.
