Janet E. Dandridge
addresses the critical need to promote and support local businesses, artists, and events from Leimert Park and the Crenshaw Corridor by re-purposing public pay-phones. The phones will be turned into portals that give the community, visitors, tourists, and everyone in-between, access to:
Local artists, galleries and studios
Information about renowned artists who have lived and worked in Leimert Park
Visual and performing arts events
booths will activate the immediate space by curating mini-exhibitions of featured artists on-site! These phones will become cultural identifiers similar to the
in Boyle Heights and the
Gate of Filial Piety
into Chinatown. The increased exposure of the Leimert Park and Crenshaw communities' art scenes will stimulate business for merchants and artists, provide activities for the community, and promote cultural awareness and discussion.
