Entries in Occupy LA (2)



LA photographer Noe Montes. We met him at #OCCUPYLA while he was taking portraits. The last two photographs are in a limited series of post cards that he made, he was kind enough to send us one of each and they are beautiful! If your lucky when you visit his site click on the blog he might have 1 or 2 left.

LA TIMES gets it right on this one…we were at #OCCUPYLA facilitating art classes with the youth down there, we were located right next to the Wish Tree where anyone can right down there wishes and hang them around the trunk. A large percentage of the teenagers that stopped by wished there was no violence in there community.

Other things that are worth mentioning are the People’s University (where class was in session when I dropped in), the Library, Meditation and Free Yoga, the Theatre Co., Kids Village, the free solar powered wifi tower and a plethora of other creative things springing up by the minute.
