Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Lady Between the Lines Art Agency seeks to find common ground through the power of arts while engaging the richness of our cultures and international communities. We emphasize bringing together artists of all races in annual local and international art exhibitions, workshops and cultural events. LBL has also established a "Kids at Risk Program", which started with the growing and under-appreciated art of graffiti. We empowered local graffiti artists by developing their fine art skills, and taught them how to transfer their art onto canvas.
ABOUT OUR ORIGINAL FOUNDER
Monticello Miller (1952 - 2011) was the founder and president of "The Lady Between the Lines Art Agency", in the US. He was the first to recognize and exhibit the artwork of young graffiti artists in Los Angeles. Monticello even re-defined graffiti art by referring to it as "Urban Hidden Literature". Among the first of the great Urban Hidden Literature artists were Alex Zendejas and David Martinez.
He used LBL to gather artists from around the globe. His slogan was "Artist to artist: together we are powerful."
Monti lived life fearlessly, and to the fullest. He was a painter, photographer, curator and musician. He was not afraid to pursue his dreams and was never swayed by what others thought of him. He lost his battle with stomach cancer in 2011. We miss him dearly.
This is a great nonprofit Art agency who is lead by some of the most caring, hardworking individuals I have known.
You'll meet wonderful artists who's strength of character and artistic drive will inspire you.
I highly recommend volunteering.
