The class is making a cardboard set of the neighborhood and exchanging stories. They are learning how Urban Fruit Trail will transform their neighborhood. This artwork will become the background for the upcoming puppet show and music video.
Austin Young and David Burns of Fallen Fruit began their class this week with Fruit Machine. Stay tuned for the video!
Here are some of the questions that the class explored: What is your favorite Fruit? What is your earliest memory of Fruit? What is the most emotional fruit? What kind of Fruit would you be?
"Talking Benches," our 2012 public art installation, led by Pearl Hsiung and Anna Sew Hoy, is still up on display on local bus benches along Wilshire Boulevard and 6th Street (between LaFayette Park and MacArthur Park).
A local blogger took notice of the benches and contacted HOLA to find out more. The result is this wonderful blog post on LA Streetsblog.org.

Tanya has been keeping busy with various with exhibitions, installations and new projects, but we look forward to working with her again in the near future.
