Arts Month was kicked into high gear last week with a rousing set of performances and an announcement of all the special events this January on the plaza at the Music Center in Downtown Los Angeles. In its third year, the annual month-long celebration aims to encourage locals and visitors to get out and see a play, take a look at some art, or soak up some culture at theatres, galleries, and museums all over town.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was joined by local dignitaries and a plethora of performers, including some amazing acrobats from Cirque du Soleil, and free, live performances from the Hollywood High School Show Choir, and David Hidalgo and Louie Perez of Los Lobos.
