Event description
Neighborhood Treasure Unveiling & Block Party Celebration for Tuskegee Airman, Leroy "Buster" Criss

About this event

Neighborhood Treasures celebrates historically significant Monrovians through the installation of public art pieces in various neighborhoods throughout the community. The goal of the program is to enrich the lives of those who view the art and improve neighborhoods by its presence.

Neighborhood Treasures was developed by Monrovia Area Partnership staff and leaders, vetted by the Art in Public Places Committee, and approved by the City Council in 2018. Neighborhood Treasures' public art includes specialized artwork that visually represents the life and contributions of the honorees.

On August 7, 2021, we will be honoring our 5th Neighborhood Treasure honoree, Tuskegee Airman, Leroy "Buster" Criss. There will be an art unveiling and a block party celebration to follow. The entire community is welcome to come by and enjoy!

Organizer Monrovia Area Partnership (MAP)

Organizer of Neighborhood Treasure Block Party

The Monrovia Area Partnership (MAP) program was formed in 2006 as a community-based program to combat crime, blight, and resident apathy.  We realized that this could not be accomplished without the most important participants... our residents! MAP is a partnership of staff, residents, businesses, and service organizations all working together with the common goal of building a premier community.  There are many opportunities for community members to get involved and stay active in the City.  Remember, you can make a difference. Why not start now? Get involved with the MAP program and make your mark!
