Clockshop

Pasadena Art Alliance

Clockshop is a multidisciplinary arts organization that works to expand the dialogue around cultural production, politics, and urban space by commissioning new projects by contemporary visual artists and writers, and by partnering with diverse cultural institutions. The organization was founded in 2004 by artist and filmmaker Julia Meltzer to create opportunities for artists working in public space.

PAA funds will support Watershifter, a public art installation by Sarah Rosalena Brady in Los Angeles State Historic Park, on view from August – November 2022. Watershifter will physically and virtually reimagine LA River rocks to call attention to the river’s emergence, divergence and convergence over time. The artist envisions four monumental concrete sculptures arranged in a row, pointing from the LA River channel toward the Pacific Ocean.
