LA River: Past, Present, Future

The Los Angeles River is a river, and poet Lewis MacAdams, who founded the Friends of the LA Friends of the Los Angeles, was a key figure in changing how we think about it as one. He'll be joined by historian Bill Deverell, architect Mia Lehrer, and artist Lauren Bon in a day-long symposium about restoring the river and the communities that line its concrete banks. The symposium is funded by a grant from the Mellon Elemental Arts Pomona initiative.

The symposium is free and open to the public.

Film screening - Rock the Boat, Saving America's Wildest River

Saturday, April 5, 2014 - 7 – 9 p.m.
Hahn 101, Pomona College

In the summer of 2008, George Wolfe, a satirical writer and avid boater decided to paddle the entire 52 miles of the Los Angeles River, from the headwaters in Canoga Park to its mouth in Long Beach. He organized an expedition and, together with a dozen other ragtag locals he changed the course of the river forever. This film tells their incredible story, the story of the embattled waterway, and the story of Los Angeles' past, present and potential future. Join us as we conclude the L.A. River Symposium April 5th at 7:00 PM for a film screening of Rock the Boat and have a post-film panel discussion with the film director and Pomona faculty. This event is funded by a grant from the Mellon Elemental Arts Initiative.
