Swept Away: Love Letter to a Surrogate is a community-oriented artistic project that aims to create a transcontinental heartbeat across America. 65 Los Angeles County artists will present live performances over Earth Day Weekend: April 22 and 23, 2023 at the Santa Monica State Beach near the Annenberg Community Beach House on the Pacific Ocean.
Swept Away began in September 2022, when 65 Los Angeles County artists sent "love letters" to 65 artists on the East End of Long Island who responded with live performances on East Hampton's Main Beach in September and October. In April 2023, the reverse will take place with 65 West Coast artists creating performances inspired by and in response to their East Coast counterparts' letters. On April 22 and 23, 2023, we are pleased to present up to five simultaneous performances taking place during the hours of 8 am-12 pm and 4-10 pm on Santa Monica State Beach in front of Annenberg Community Beach House.
