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.
