Conceived and founded by artist Mark Bradford, philanthropist and collector Eileen Harris Norton, and social activist Allan DiCastro, Art + Practice is a foundation based in Los Angeles that is committed to supporting the needs of local foster youth and giving the Leimert Park community access to the arts. Art + Practice achieves these twin goals by providing space for museum-curated contemporary art exhibitions and a public program space for moderated art lectures and discussions which coincide with the exhibitions on view, as well as by teaching foster youth life skills, providing access to housing, and individualized education and employment support via its foster youth service collaborator, First Place for Youth.
