We enjoyed another great talk by Mark Lakeman of Portland’s City Repair last Friday night, and on Saturday we were inspired by their example to paint a new intersection repair mural.
These photos are worth many thousands of words – thanks to Kathy Hill and Yuki Kidokoro for documenting the event!
There’s a lot to say about it… and a lot more folks that did a lot of work whose picture I didn’t get in to this quick blog entry. I am still exhausted and have other work to catch up on… so this blog entry is all too brief, and hopefully others can help fill in more details in comments, etc.
LINKS and LINKS to more articles about the intersection repair:
More historic info on the Bimini Slough, Sacatela Creek, and our train tracks here.
There’s excellent event coverage over at Homegrown Evolution. (Check out the comments there… looks like the new crosswalks we painted look almost too official!)
Eco-Villager Adonia Lugo has more excellent coverage here, including much better descriptions of the railway section where she and Bobby took the lead. She and contrasts how different parts of L.A. approach their common spaces.
Here’s a link to Kathy’s photo gallery on Picassa and to Yuki’s photo album on Facebook. (I am not 100% sure that these are completely available to the public… if they don’t work for you, email us and we’ll see what we can do.)
I covered it on my art blog, too.
