About La Tierra de la Culebra Art Park
Originally established after the 1992 Los Angeles civil uprising, community volunteers organized by artist Tricia Ward and ARTSCorp LA transformed a forsaken lot on Avenue 57 in Highland Park into La Tierra de la Culebra, an art park for local youths and residents to relax and mingle. Together they constructed a 500-foot serpent made from stone, rubble, and piqué tiles, which symbolized the central goals of the art park: community strength and regeneration after difficult times. In more recent years the AAC has become a steward of the Art Park and all it stands for. http://a.laculebrapark.com/
IMAGINAR is made possible in part through the generous support of the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles.
