The Village Green is a beautiful park in the center of Pacific Palisades. Located on the site of the original park founded in 1923, the community dreamed of the recreating the Village Green Park and in August 1973 the privately funded park was created as a place of beauty to be enjoyed from within and admired from a distance. The tree-lined park features a fountain, benches and lawn area. Surrounded by local restaurants and businesses it's the center of activity for the Palisades. The park is supported solely by donations and is maintained by volunteers. To this day, it stands as a symbol of our community's spirit, generosity and love of beauty.
Allied Artists of the Santa Monica Mountains and Seashore is a 20-year-old organization of local fine artists that paint representational art of the Santa Monica Mountains and beaches to promote appreciation of our environment and to support conservation and maintenance of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA). The 156,000-acre recreation area stretches from Runyon and Franklin Canyons in Hollywood to Point Mugu State Park in Ventura County and contains over 500 miles of trails including the 67-mile-long backbone trail that follows the crest of the coastal mountains from Will Rogers State Historic Park to Point Mugu State Park
The group of artists provides information, art, and an appreciation of the local mountains and seashore as a public service and donates a portion of art sales to conservation and environmental organizations. The group collaborates with national and local agencies such as National Wildlife Federation, #SaveLACougars, Mountains Restoration Trust, Western National Parks Association, National Park Service and King Gillette Visitor Center to present art shows and raise funds to help preserve the mountains and beaches. The group also sponsors free monthly paint-outs on the second Saturday of the month. The free paint outs provide a unique opportunity for any painter to enjoy a sense of camaraderie with like-minded people and are a great way to see the beauty of the natural environment. A painting demonstration and friendly critique is usually held at the paint-outs. The free paint-outs are from 9 am to 1 pm and are open to any artist and any media and at any skill level.
