Shouldn’t it be L.A. Parks and Works? Go tonight to the LACMA Thursday night’s series and find out why it’s not and what’s at stake with new building and parks projects throughout the city. 7:30 tonight in the Leo S. Bing Theater, for free, will get you an educational and inspirational night surrounded by fellow Angeleno’s curious about the place of Green Space in Los Angeles. There will be a panel of four speakers that include an artist, a landscape architect, a public policy expert and an architect who will discuss how parks and recreational sites have changed throughout the course of the history of the city and speculate on their future.
