About this organization
Founded in 2014, LA River Public Art Project combines advocacy, public policy, and the arts to re-present the river we share. We believe that dynamic public art is the ideal platform for focusing public attention on the Los Angeles River. Together, we can right the environmental wrongs that have befallen the river and reclaim it for creative and community-led projects. Through planning, conversation, and art-driven engagement, we work to honor the founding communities of this historic landscape, use art to raise the voices of underserved communities, and support the vibrant neighborhoods the river flows through.
