Exhibition Specifications

LA River X has a growing collection of exhibition materials available for loan - artmaking and storytelling activations, framed prints, didactic panels, land acknowledgment panels, and large-scale vinyl prints. Each is outlined below. We are also ready to partner with you to create new exhibitions and experiences that draw upon the extensive LA River X collection of photographs, videos, artworks, and sound recordings.

Artmaking and storytelling activations

In collaboration with super-talented LA River X alums, we can create pop-up interactive spaces that invite people to share their LA River stories through drawing, collaging, and writing. With simple paperwork, people's creations can be digitized, amplified on the LA River X Instagram accounts, and archived forever in the Western Water Archives.

Framed photographic prints and accompanying didactic panels

These prints started their life as an exhibition at the Central Library in Downtown Los Angeles and many of them had a second showing at The Claremont Colleges Library. They are accompanied by a didactic panel, a land acknowledgment panel, and a handheld exhibition guide.

We currently have thirty-one framed prints. Seventeen images are from the LA Public Library's Photographic Collection, and fourteen are from the following LA River alums:

Our printing partner is a fine art photo printer in Santa Clarita, and additional images can be produced in this format as needed. Displaying the Los Angeles Public Library archival photographs requires permission from the LA Public Library, which we will request.
