News and Events – 8 September 2010

September 8, 2010 § 1 Comment

RECENT CREEK FREAK NEWS:

>Elmer Avenue is a star! It’s a project that richly deserves this week’s coverage from KPCC and the L.A. Times. (Creek Freek knew Elmer way back before he made it big. Proof.)

>L.A. Creek Freak’s Jessica Hall and Jane Tsong have contributed to a very informative and beautiful online media book Water, CA: Creative Visualizations for a New Millenium. Fellow travelers Cleo Woelfle-Erskine, Isabelle Duvivier and Claude Willey are also among the 20+ featured contributors.  Jessica Hall’s Daylighting Consciousness and Streams is an excellent new version of an early Creek Freak article. Jane Tsong’s Myriad Unnamed Streams piece (about creeks in North East L.A.) appears on her website in even greater detail. 

>Recommended reading: State Senate: Industry Bagmen – Mark Gold’s autopsy on the death of the AB1998 – a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags. (LACF linked to this earlier, but it got kinda buried under a long article.)

UPCOMING EVENTS:

>Jenny Price’s L.A. River tours continue Sunday September 12th, Sunday September 26th, and Sunday October 3rd. Information and reservations here. Maybe also brush up on the tour’s new unwelcome features here.

>On Wednesday September 22nd 2010, Zócalo presents a panel discussion on the future of the Los Angeles River. Mike Woo moderates the following panelists: Marc Salette of Chee Salette Architecture, Jim Stafford of Perkins+Will, Mia Lehrer of Mia Lehrer + Associates, and Michael Maltzan of Michael Maltzan Architecture. Make a reservation early, because these Zocalo talks fill up.
