Welcome to the first salon on greening of the LA River! An engaged crowd turned out for the kick off of our Navigators salon series at a private home in the Pacific Palisades. After a warm welcome from hostess Cynthia Hirschhorn, guests had an update from Executive Director Omar Brownson. A highlight of the afternoon was hearing from renowned landscape architects Mia Lehrer and Glen Dake, who gave an inside view of what’s happening on the LA River. Sangrias, spritzers and plenty of healthy bites fuelled an active discussion of how change can happen. Guests had an opportunity to speak firsthand with leading designers who are working to transform the river corridor. Stay tuned for our next salon on public art. Drop us a line if you would like to be invited.
