Lunch with the Lions

November 10th, 2015 Posted by LA 2050 Grant Challenge, Lions, Tigers And..., News No Comment yet

We invite you to join us for Lunch with the Lions. We will explain our sound art installation, share the history of the building, guide a discussion among our fun simple survey questions and then record people’s responses. The lunch gatherings will take place every Wednesday at noon starting November 18th, in the Pasadena City Hall courtyard near the benches, in the midst of our installation Lions, Tigers, And… Bring your own lunch.

Freewaves is gathering interpretations on what they think the meaning is of the lions on the building. Responses will be recorded into audio clips and transcribed to become part of the finale on March 11 & 12, 2016.
