Proud to have two of my LA River prints hanging in the new California Speaker of the House, Anthony Rendon’s State Capitol office. Speaker Rendon represents LA’s 63rd district, which includes southern portions of the LA River, and is a great river advocate. His Assembly Bill 530, which authorizes the creation of a local working group to develop a Lower River revitalization plan was signed by Gov. Brown in 2015.
Back in February his office purchased a 30” x 45” dye sublimation aluminum print of the river I took at sunset from Maywood, and just recently he personally ordered a similarly sized print I took of an old railroad trestle bridge in South Gate. The lower portions of the river have been sorely neglected in the overall river revitalization plans, it is so good to see this vital part of the river getting some attention. I am glad to be a part of helping to illustrate the beauty of the area and the importance it holds to the communities lining the banks of the river there.
