Recipes to Nourish Communities and Panel Talk March 5th!
We are one of the subjects of multimedia artist Taiji Terasaki latest projects, “Recipes to Nourish Communities.” Terasaki highlights the importance of nourishing the local Los Angeles community with his new Mural.
Join us for a panel discussion on March 5th at 2pm! Famed art critic Shana Nys Dambrot will lead a discussion with mural participants Ron Finley, Artists David Allen Burns and Austin Young of Fallen Fruit, and representatives from the LA Mission and Alma Farms. With the mural and its AR component this 2023 debut ignites an important conversation complete with actionable ways to contribute to a more sustainable and sustenance-filled Los Angeles. RSVP: HERE
The mural , executed on aluminum panels and mounted to the exterior of the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles’ (@themcla) space at 260 S. Main St., is a large collage of images that elevate the profile of four organizations/artists committed to providing access to fresh and nutritious ingredients in their corners of LA. People / organizations highlighted are Ron Finley, Alma Backyard Farms, The La Mission and Fallen Fruit.
The mural by artist Taiji Terasaki incorporates augmented reality to enhance the story of our organizations. On-view beginning February 15th, 2023
Acknowledging that food systems and the environment are intrinsically connected, with modern-day modes of consumption having a profound effect on climate change, Terasaki reconsiders how society can balance culinary habits with the natural world. Food as a means to create positive change has long been a captivating idea for the Honolulu-based artist.
