Serving as an economic incubator for residents and legacy businesses, Destination Crenshaw is an outdoor people’s museum that’s countering the forces of gentrification and cultural erasure that threaten our community. This first-of-its-kind project will preserve the culture and historic contributions of Black Los Angeles by increasing a sense of community ownership.
In addition to commissioning over 100 public artworks from world renowned Black artists, Destination Crenshaw is creating a pipeline to good-paying public sector careers in construction, operations and maintenance and other project elements include the planting of over 1,000 new trees and over 30,000 new square feet of green scaping.
Destination Crenshaw begins construction in Spring 2020 with plans to open in Fall 2020.
