7th Annual Found L.A.: FREE Festival of Neighborhoods Expands to 2 days, October 21 & 22, Offers Tours Inspired by PACIFIC STANDARD TIME

On Saturday, October 21, 2017 and Sunday, October 22, 2017, L.A. Commons will host its 7th annual Found L.A: Festival of Neighborhoods. The weekend of tours is inspired by the Getty’s ambitious PACIFIC STANDARD TIME which in its third iteration highlights Latin American art in Los Angeles and throughout the Americas. PST: LA/LA will focus on such subjects as luxury objects in the pre-Columbian Americas, 20th-century Afro-Brazilian art, alternative spaces in Mexico City, and boundary-crossing practices of Latino artists.
LA Commons will join in this celebration of Latin American culture across Southern California by focusing Found LA on the vibrant latino culture taking place in Los Angeles neighborhoods. The free tours will include an exploration of the evening Guatemalan street market that takes place nightly in Westlake; A visit to Judy Baca’s seminal “Great Wall of Los Angeles” in the Tujunga Wash in North Hollywood; and a walk to experience the vibrant Oaxacan community in Pico Union. PST: LA/LA provides the perfect jumping off point to connect with LA neighborhoods and the dynamic, but often overlooked street culture.
Found L.A. is a FREE, annual citywide event that showcases culturally dynamic neighborhoods through the eyes of residents, public figures and renowned artists, who volunteer to share their unique perspective and passion for their neighborhood. Found L.A. is open to anyone who wants to organize a tour of their neighborhood, and anyone who wants to learn more about the vast expanse that is Los Angeles. As part of Found L.A., culture seekers explore historic boulevards, sample delicious foods in unknown corridors, and hear little known stories, among many other adventures in communities all around the city.
