Jenna Didier & Khayra Mentado — LA River Public Art Project

LA River Public Art Project advocates for the integration of arts and culture in revitalization efforts along the River's 51-mile corridor from Canoga Park to Long Beach. Through a variety of programs and initiatives, including activations along a different stretch of the River each month, the organization promotes community-driven social spaces, sparks discussion about public space, and demonstrates the confluence of nature, art, and play.

The organization supports various civic practices that go beyond traditional forms of civic art, recognizing that art can take many forms, including social sculpture and regenerative actions created in collaboration with communities. By promoting inclusionary art-based public projects and supporting artists in their work within communities, LA River Public Art Project envisions a river environment that embraces cultural pluralism and fearlessness through a multitude of creative expressions.
