LA River Public Art Project

Pasadena Art Alliance

The Mission of the LA River Public Art Project is to transform Paayme Paxaayt (aka the Los Angeles River) into a shared space intrinsically linked to public art. Founded in 2014, it combines advocacy, public policy, and the arts to re-present the river we share, believing that dynamic public art is the ideal platform for focusing public attention on the Los Angeles River and can right the environmental wrongs that have befallen the river and reclaim it for creative and community-led projects.

The PAA grant will fund El Meandro 51/52, a 2023 series of monthly, artist-led walks along all 51 miles of the LA River where participants will explore and encounter live performances, temporary art installations, and existing works of art.
