Folk Art Everywhere & Mercado La Paloma – West Adams

9:01 AM PDT on May 21, 2011

See art in the Folk Art Everywhere project

Tour the West Adams neighborhood in a fun, easygoing way

Visit unique community art centers and public murals

Smell the roses

--------------

As with all Folk Art Bike Tours, we’ll mix an exploration of art, neighborhoods and unique community gathering spots. This time we’ll focus on West Adams, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. While West Adams features a collection of architecturally significant houses, it is also the site of community-based murals, creative spaces and delicious food. We will tour the area via bike to soak in some of these places, including Mercado La Paloma and 24th Street Theater.  We’ll also explore how this neighborhood is transforming, with an eye toward changing food offerings in the area.

The ride is led by Heidi Zeller of Folk Art Everywhere and Damon Turner of Mercado La Paloma.

Total mileage: Approx. 6, with no hills. Great for beginning to moderate cyclists. Ride is FREE!

A project of the Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM), Folk Art Everywhere has partnered with 25 diverse organizations and businesses to place artwork representing cultures from around the world inside venues throughout LA County. www.folkarteverywhere.com

The Craft and Folk Art Museum champions cultural understanding by encouraging curiosity about our diverse world through the universal lens of art.

Mercado La Paloma is a comprehensive community development project that brings together new economic, health, social, and cultural resources under one roof.
