A Talk in the Park
Co-presented by the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West
Over the last 130 years, MacArthur Park has transformed many times, from a nineteenth-century swamp to a tourist icon, and from a crime-plagued public space to a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization. What have been the forces behind these transformations? Does the park narrate the larger story of L.A.'s development and its future? Explore this and more, followed by lunch at Mama's Hot Tamales.
Free (not including lunch).
