Encouraging Excellence in L.A. Civic Design
About the Salon
Join Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Lauren Bon, Professor Manuel Castells, City Commissioner York Chang, City Councilmember Tom Labonge, City Commissioner & Farmlab's Adolfo V. Nodal, & City Councilmember Ed Reyes for this morningtime presentation about civic design in Los Angeles.
The program will underscore the goal of creating the necessary conditions for consistent and long-term excellence in public architecture, public art, and urban design that best reflects Los Angeles’ international stature as a vibrant and creative cultural center.
The 'Under Spring Optimist Breakfast' is so-named because the first such program was held early in the morning in 2007 underneath the N. Spring Street Bridge on a Friday the 13th. "That's a date and time only an optimist would love," said one of that program's organizers. The upbeat moniker stuck.
This program is free-of-charge and open to the public. Breakfast served at 8:15 a.m.
