The Arts District Trip

The field trip to the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles was filled with many historical and cultural lessons. First, we reviewed how the Arts District came into existence as the City of Los Angeles tries to revitalize DTLA.

Our first stop was the Urban Radish, a modern grocery market. This market takes on social responsibility by employing former convicts. This allowed them to have an opportunity to succeed after their incarceration and signal honest employment. 

Next, our students walked to the Hauser Wirth & Schimmel museum, however, it was closed. Nevertheless, the students were able to walk around for a little bit and explore the garden and space before we were eventually asked to leave.

Finally, we went to Angel City Brewery, which combines modern warehouse space with a brewery and modern art. This was also a time for the students to enjoy some street food and socialize with one another.
