The performances were set up through Arts Brookfield, the cultural arm of the office real estate giant.

Right now, Arts Brookfield has several local artists under consideration for its "Arts Set Free" showcase displays at its buildings.

They will include painters, sculptors, photographers, musicians and filmmakers.

Arts Brookfield says its goal is presenting "exciting, world-class cultural experiences to hundreds of thousands of people for free each year in both indoor and outdoor public spaces."

There are displays at each of Brookfield’s properties in New York, Los Angeles, Denver, Houston, Toronto, Perth and Sydney.

The activities include concerts, theater, dance, film screenings and art exhibitions.

This year, Arts Brookfield is celebrating 25 years of bringing free art to the public, but today's events in downtown L.A. are meant to celebrate Brookefield's new Los Angeles properties.

Brookfield recently completed its purchase of longtime L.A. office tower owner MPG Office Trust Inc.

Brookfield now controls seven high-profile skyscrapers in the L.A. financial district, which has long suffered from high vacancies even as downtown's overall reputation has improved.
