Getting to Know LA: Boyle Heights
Sunday, July 11
11:30am – approx 1:00pm | | FREE (transportation and lunch not included)
Explore Latin American cultures in Boyle Heights beginning with a visit to our partner, La Casa del Mariachi, a shop that produces colorful and sparkling mariachi garments. We’ll then head on a walking tour led by urban planner James Rojas and explore the many creative ways in which the residents of Boyle Heights animate their front yards and streets to make this a truly distinct corner of Los Angeles. Directions to the meeting spot will be provided when you RSVP. Please RSVP by July 9th to (323) 937-4230 x50 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Walking tour begins at La Casa del Mariachi (1836 E. 1st St. – across from Mariachi Plaza)
We will view art work that has been placed at La Casa through the Folk Art Everywhere project. Then we will hear about the art of mariachi garments from the owner of La Casa. From there, we’ll move on to explore the neighborhood on foot: from murals and architecture to porches and fences.
The tour will involve walking approx. 1 mile roundtrip.
