The Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) invites you to participate in this food appreciation project that chronicles our City’s history, by using the Story Map Tour app. The book’s themes of memory, home, cultural identity, and displacement are the inspiration for this food mapping project.

Help us map what and where Angelenos eat. Nominate your favorite eateries, whether it’s a market that has stood for generations, a hundred-year-old bakery, or a particular street where people emigrated from other lands gather to enjoy holiday meals, through using the hashtag #LookingAtMyLosAngeles on all social media platforms.

Discover the many cultural corridors of Los Angeles and its food through this interactive experience. #LookingAtMyLosAngeles will populate the Story Map Tour. The map will feature a cultural district in Los Angeles and include videos, images and photographs. Users can click sequentially through the Story Map Tour app or create their own tour.

‘Loitering is delightful’ at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery

Loitering is traditionally considered the preserve of delinquents, teenagers, and miscreants. Generally speaking, those up to no good.   Of course, some are freer to dillydally than others. As Ross Gay reminds us in his incisive essay Loitering Is Delightful (which the author has kindly permitted us to use here), “the darker your skin, the more likely you are to be “loitering.” As Gay goes on to point out, for people of color, any public display of “non-productive delight” – from loitering…
