Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine

As part of this year’s 10th anniversary celebration of the literacy initiative, the Big Read Program, and the featured title, Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine, Angelenos are invited to participate in a citywide art awareness and cultural appreciation campaign, #LookingAtMyLosAngeles.

Starting on April 1 Angelenos can send a picture of a mural, monument, historic site or related public work in Los Angeles that features historic figures, civil rights themes, and/or address social issues. A 30-second video of creative expression in front of public artworks or related locations are encouraged.  Through the use of The Story Map Tour App participants will discover suggested locations featuring a place-based narrative with images or videos. Each “story point” in the narrative is geo-located. Users have the option of clicking sequentially through the narrative or can browse by interacting with the map or using the thumbnail carousel.

Tag DCA on Instagram so it can be shared but also use the following hashtags to promote the campaign:
