Updated info from the Dept. of Public Works on the La Cienega Interceptor Sewer Rehabilitation Project.
The contractor is having striping work done on La Cienega in both the northbound and southbound lanes, between Pico and Whitworth and between Olympic and Pico, respectively.
LADOT is requiring that the work be done on a Saturday, so it is currently scheduled for this upcoming Saturday, April 14, 8 am - 6 pm.
The contractor had intended full closure in the work area but Dept. of Public Works was able to work with them to ensure that access to residents, businesses, and religious institutions is maintained at all times. So while through traffic will be restricted, local access traffic will be allowed.
Please see flyer for more information:
From: Pascaline Doucin-Dahlke – Artist Curator
I am a local artist looking to explore the use the four to five neighborhood kiosks on Pico Blvd as a neighborhood public art and poetry exhibition along Pico Blvd. from Redondo to La Cienega for the next 6 months. For the March exhibition, I am looking at two themes: Spring and Women.
Artworks and poems will be printed on 11” x 17” sheets of paper to bring a festive atmosphere on Pico Blvd. that will support the retailers’ and community season spirit and Black History Month. I will print the selected artwork on mat paper upon receipt of a jpeg via email. One artwork or poem per artist/writer will be chosen. 2D Artworks can be either drawing, painting, photography, digital, collage as you wish and must be printable on an 11” x 17” paper with a sufficient resolution so it looks good from a distance. At the end of the exhibition, you may pick up the print.
A few notes:
Please have the title, your name and website clearly written within the e-mail you will send as an attachment to the
email: email@example.com. Once selected, I will reach out for additional contact information.
This is a volunteer project with no budget/ financial compensation. This public art exhibition is intended to contribute to the beautification and activation of Pico Blvd and will provide exposure to your art to pedestrians walking along Pico Blvd and the adjacent neighborhoods. We will publicize this within neighborhood council and neighborhood newsletters in the beginning and hope to spread the word in other formats including Nextdoor and Community newspapers like Neighborhood News.
Deadline to Submit: February 17th
Selection of 10 artists and poets: February 19th
Notification: February 20th
Exhibition installation: February 25
End of exhibition: March 31st
Pick up of printed artworks on April 3rd at Paper and Plastic cafe from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. Printed artworks that are not picked up will be discarded.
The intent is to have an exhibit each month and if you are interested to participate, there will be more exhibitions to come in the future that you may find more fitting:
