We're very happy to have our stories and photos from Los Angeles' Chinatown in this latest WAPOW / 華報, a collaborative community-based service learning project in LA Chinatown that engages a multigenerational team of contributors to produce and distribute a bilingual print quarterly. Issue 5 is focused on the idea of home. You can download the whole magazine here.
Photography has become an important part of everyday life, but did you know that you can take beautiful photos with your phone that can also be used for science? Photography instructor Bear Guerra will share tips and tricks in this workshop at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County to make the most of your camera. November 6 | 7-9 pm on Tuesday evening.
Join us at the Bowtie Parcel in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 14th, from 3-6 pm (2780 W Casitas Avenue) for a live tour of the Bowtie, where we will explore some of the historical and present-day uses of this dynamic site.
Bowtie artist Beatriz Cortez will talk about the construction and installation of her site-responsive sculpture, Tzolk’in (currently on view); CA State Parks interpretive specialist Luis Rincon will describe the flora and fauna that pass through the Bowtie; and former Southern Pacific Railroad employee Bob Ramírez will share stories about his time working at the site when it was a bustling train maintenance yard. We will round out the afternoon with a fireside reception. More info available here.
