What You’ll be Funding

Beginning Friday, October 12th, and continuing through Spring of 2019, Panda, Oscar Tuazon and  LAND will present to the public a series of events at  Los Angeles Water School (LAWS). Bringing together remarkable guests from a variety of vantage points including local history, architecture, politics, and arts programming, these events held at the LAWS Downtown LA site will construct a genealogy of the role and economics of water in Los Angeles.  In order to bring to life this momentous programming and make it all thoroughly accessible to the public, we need your support.

What is LAWS?

Los Angeles Water School (LAWS) is a functional artwork, an experimental school for students of all ages to engage in dialogue and collaborative work about water. Located adjacent to the Los Angeles River, in a structure inspired by Steve and Holly Baer’s self-sufficient passive solar Zome House (1969-72), LAWS is the first of four Water Schools planned by artist Oscar Tuazon, with locations in Minnesota, Michigan, and Nevada. Presented by LAND, this series of events builds a genealogy of the complex life of water in Los Angeles, through the lens of local history, architecture, politics, and art. Through this collaborative process tracing how water connects diverse communities within Los Angeles and across the continent, working from a micro to macro understanding of policy and infrastructure, the artist and LAND are excited to continue this constitutive dialogue and create a setting for the exchange of cross-disciplinary ideas and learning.
