The High Line Network announced on Monday that 15 new members are joining their group of nonprofit infrastructure reuse projects.
Destination Crenshaw celebrates the history and culture of Black Los Angeles while revitalizing the Crenshaw neighborhood and ultimately fostering a new economic center.
This community-inspired project will use the iconic Crenshaw Boulevard as a canvas and anchor for public art and streetscape design. Destination Crenshaw will be built for, by, and in honor of the community, and will celebrate the historical and contemporary contributions of Black Los Angeles—the largest black community west of the Mississippi River. Destination Crenshaw has initiated a capital campaign to raise funds needed to execute community outreach, a digital marketing campaign, and the capital projects needed to create the 1.3-mile long outdoor art and culture experience celebrating Black Los Angeles.
