10 Bridges Downtown – A Walk in Four Parts
Led by Bob Inman, author of Finding Los Angeles by Foot and borrowing (with permission) from the genius of Dan Koeppel: an open call to walk together the “true” 10 Bridges route, a mostly flat route across Los Angeles infrastructure. Note: this type of urban hiking is not for the casual stroller, but there is no charge, no ticket and no requirement to reserve.
When: April 30th, 9 AM – 5:30 PM
Where: Metro-Lincoln & Cypress, 370 W Avenue 26, Los Angeles, California 90031

“Oracle tackle the effects of organizational frameworks on global events and private individuals. Some works in the installation symbolize marketplace machinations, both official and unofficial, while others are meditations on games, surveillance, vast data sets, mathematical and biological patterns, and even the logic of art itself. Just under the surface of the works in Oracle is an air of anxiety, as if individuals’ freedoms within these manmade phenomena are illusory or beyond reach.”
When: Opening April 29th
Where: The Broad, 221 S. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012
