Do It. A lot series.

The Long Beach Arts Council is bringing art to vacant lots around Long Beach this weekend as part of its aptly named A Lot series. Located in LB's Little Cambodia, where the largest community Cambodians are living outside of Cambodia, these performances touch upon the themes of immigration, dislocation, and "the fragile nature of 'home' ".

The program is taking some otherwise unused lots (like the one on Anaheim & Walnut, my old 'hood), and hosting visual and performance-based arts along with discussion panels.

The first is set to take place tonight at 6 p.m., with a following symposium at 7 p.m. at the vacant lot at the intersection of Anaheim and Walnut Streets. Another performance will take place this Saturday at the same location.

And there's plenty of Cambodian cuisine in the area, if you're in the mood to have a themed evening. Admittance is free, and people in attendance are urged to park at the neighboring Mark Twain library.

A lot will take place at 1546 E. Anaheim St. at 6 p.m.
