Los Angeles Lakers Launch Art Program to Recognize and Support Minority Artists

The Los Angeles Lakers are launching a competitive art program to recognize and support a local community of minority artists, it was announced Friday.

Artist Charly Palmer is partnering with the team on the In The Paint program to benefit BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) artists.

Palmer and a panel of three judges will select 15 up-and-coming and established artists of color to create original pieces of work that will be showcased at the inaugural 2022 In the Paint Art Exhibition at the Los Angeles Lakers’ UCLA Health Training Center next spring.

In addition, Palmer and accompanying panelists will select 10 local artists to receive grants supporting their development as artists and mentorship opportunities.
