LA River X
El Río de Los Ángeles X
LA River X is a public humanities project showcasing river stories that might otherwise be lost to history. The project invites everyday people to show what the river means to them, through photography, artwork, writing, sound, and video. Guest hosts’ materials are published on the LA River X Instagram accounts, with the option to have those materials safely kept forever in the Western Water Archives, a digital archive at The Claremont Colleges Library. This bilingual (English/Spanish) project has hosted over 60 takeovers, and preserved more than 1,700 memories, and counting. LA River X is curated by Tilly Hinton, PhD.
