Destination Crenshaw is a reparative development project and will be the largest Black public art project in the United States. The project will include new pocket parks, hundreds of newly planted trees, and over 100 commissioned works of art by Black artists who have strong ties to Los Angeles, creating a pipeline of work and jobs for emerging, seasoned, and internationally renowned artists. The $100 million, 1.3-mile corridor on Crenshaw Boulevard is scheduled to debut its first public space this fall–Sankofa Park. Join us for a tour of the corridor and newly minted park, which will feature permanent, outdoor sculptural installations by artists including Kehinde Wiley, Charles Dickson, Maren Hassinger, and Artis Lane.
