Here is the NEPO+ Long Beach address: 2212 N Lakewood Blvd. Long Beach, CA 90815 With every visit to our Long Beach Gallery Events, Open Mic Nights and Workshops NEPO's goal is to continue to open the conversation about environmental sustainability and spread awareness about the continued Salton Sea Restoration efforts and NEPO's ArtCupuncture Project. We hope our visitors are able to fully enjoy themselves during our creative community activities and simultaneously learn about the environmental disaster currently affecting Southern California.
