Destination Crenshaw Groundbreaking
February 29, 2020 • 1:00 pm(All times are in PDT)
“What we’re doing isn’t just placemaking; it’s placekeeping.” That’s how Council Marqueece Harris-Sawson explains Destination Crenshaw, the much-anticipated, open air art gallery, raised pathway, overlook and pocket parks lining a 1.3 mile section of the Crenshaw/LAX light-rail line, currently under construction. Destination Crenshaw, intended to honor black culture at the same time as it faces gentrification in the fast-developing South LA, breaks ground Saturday at an event open to all. While the line-up of artists is still under wraps, you can hear the latest on the funding and the design and meet designers from the architectural firm Perkins + Will, landscape architects Studio-MLA and many other participants in this community-led project.
