"Third L.A. presents Amnesiac City: Bolstering Civic Memory in Los Angeles"
Now in its fourth year, Occidental College’s thought-provoking 3rd LA series returns. How should L.A., so often caricatured as a city of the future, engage more actively with its past and the broader notion of civic memory?
The panel will explore the intersection of architecture, monuments, cultural identity and the histories of place.
Host Christopher Hawthorne, Oxy professor of practice and chief design officer for the city of L.A., will be joined by, seated from left: Wajenda Chambeshi, the program manager for the Great Streets Initiative in the Mayor’s Office of City Services; LA Times columnist Frank Shyong; Gail Kennard, president of Kennard Design Group (KDG), the oldest African-American- owned architectural practice in the West and vice-president of the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission. Stella Ramos '20, organizer of the Indigenous Student Association at Oxy also participated although not on the panel.
Nov. 5, 2019 in Choi Auditorium.
